mille-feuilles for lazies

Do you know that moments when you really need to eat something sweet but you don't have time to cook, or maybe it's simply a super lazy sunday...? I do, one of them was just yesterday and I even needed to cook for some guests... so i did the laziest and easiest recipe ever! But don't worry because the result will be spectacular.. as if you've been in the kitchen for ages! Even the worst omnivors won't complain about anything ;)

1 roll of ready-to-bake puff pastry
2 full tbsp margarine or soya butter
3 tbsp flour 00
2 3/4 cup soya milk
1 sachet vanilla sugar
1 or 2 drops vanilla essence
1 tbsp sugar
fresh strawberries pieces
granulated hazelnuts

strawberry jam
confectioners sugar (optional)

Preheat the oven at 190° C.  With a knife, cut the puff pastry dough into three equally-sized parts and pierce them all over with a fork, then bake them in the oven for about 20 minutes. While the puff pastry layers are cooling, prepare the sweet bèchamel sauce: melt the margarine in a saucepan, add flour and mix until well incorporated. Cook on medium heat for some minutes then slowly add the milk, while mixing. Continue to mix, add sugars and vanilla. The sauce is ready when starts to become thick. To assemble, just spread the jam on the first pastry puff layer then spread the sauce and add strawberries and hazelnuts. Repeat it for the second layer; on the last one it's possible to add more sauce and strawberries or just sprinkle with confectioners sugar and hazelnuts like i did.
