Method

Step 1

To prepare pastry,on a lightly floured surface,roll out of pastry into 8-inch(20 cm) square. Cut into 4-inch(10 cm) squares. Place pastry squares on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough.

Step 2

In a small mixing bowl,combine egg yolk and milk. Mix well and brush over pastry. Sprinkle with sugar.

Step 3

Pierce each piece of pastry several times with fork. Preheat oven to 380 F (190 C). Turn baking sheets after 10 minutes if pastry is browning too much. Cool baked pastry on wire rack.

Step 4

To Prepare Mousse: In a small saucepan,sprinkle gelatin over cold water to soften. Heat over low-heat for 3 minutes to dissolve.

Step 5

In a medium saucepan,combine granulated sugar,lemon zest,lemon juice and egg yolks. Whisk well,using a whisker.

Step 6

Place mixture over medium-heat and bring slowly to a boil,whisking constantly. Cook until just thickened(about 3 minutes).

Step 7

Remove mixture from heat and stir in gelatin and white chocolate until dissolved. Transfer mousse to a large bowl and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Step 8

In a large mixing bowl,whip cream until soft peaks form. Fold into lemon mixture.Cover and refrigerate until serving time.

Step 9

To Assembly: Cut pastries in half. Place one half on each serving plate. Spoon 1/8 of mousse mixture over bottom pastry. Place pastry top over mousse. Sift icing sugar over top. Garnish oven baked Napoleons with fresh fruit,if desired.
