:swing It's been a long time since we found a new really tasty safe treat that we can't make as good at home.
St. Hubert has a new line of frozen desserts (found at our Sobey's). Not all are safe but they DO label may contains.

Found this one and it is YUMMY!! You need to let it sit out to thaw but the pastry is just as flaky as if fresh. We've found other safe cakes etc. but never pastry and hmmmmmmm.
*contains milk, wheat, soy
*may contain eggs and sulphites

St. Hubert
Milleneuille 540g box, (4 large portions which easily could be cut in 1/2 to make 8 portions.)

Walooet it needs a good hour or two to sit out so the custard gets creamy. MMMMMMM ENJOY! Funny too as you and your daughter were the first people I thought of as I was stuffing my face. At her age this is a 'real' dessert treat.

I also see this same dessert on the St. Hubert menu. *IF* ingredients are the same - you could call ahead and confirm they have an unopened package then actually go with your DD for a wonderful dessert when out!!! :swing :banana

Just called St.Hubert restaurant. This cake comes in in a huge slab and they cut it. So they don't open new ones more than maybe once a day. SO, if you call and first, ensure each package has the same ingredients listed (which it should) let them know when you will be in so they can hold off opening a new package ahead of time and do it when you are there to ensure no cross contamination.

Here is a recipe for a similar dessert. Obviously, it's not pastry, but it is still nummy!! It was one of my favourites growing up, and I still really like it.

Mock Mille Feuilles

Graham wafers
1-6oz pkg vanilla pudding mix (not instant)
2 cups milk
1/2 pint whipping cream
icing sugar
1/8 cup milk
1 square semi sweet chocolate

Line bottom of 9X9 pan with graham wafers, perforated side down.
Mix pudding with 2 cups milk rather than 3 as stated on pkg directions. Cook until smooth and thickened.
Pour over wafers and place in fridge until cold.
Whip cream until stiff and spread over pudding layer.
Top with graham wafers. Add enough icing sugar to 1/8 cup milk until of slightly runny consistency.
Pour over wafers.
Melt chocolate and drizzle over icing. Drag knife through chocolate to make same design as pictured here.
Chill several hours before serving.

I was kidding about heading to Sobey's yesterday but will definitely get it for Saturday night! I'm trying to wean my family off nightly desserts since I can't afford them :thumbsup If our Winnipeg store doesn't have it I will ask them to order it. If St Hubert is a Canadian company I could request it through Giant Tiger as well - they are very good about ordering allergen friendly treats - that is the only place we can buy Sara Lee :happydance

We have a similar recipe called Chocolate Eclair cake - haven't made it in years but it is yummy.
