    1 hr 30 mins

Ingredients

2 purchased sheets of read made puff pastry

250ml (1 cup) milk

1 vanilla bean, split ( I used vanilla essence instead) *note - 2tsp of essence is equivalent to one vanilla bean*

3/4 cup cornflour

1/2 cup custard powder

220g (1 cup) caster sugar

750ml (3 cups) thickened cream

50g unsalted butter

3 egg yolks

Icing sugar, to dust

Directions

1Step 1

2Preheat oven to 210C. Line a 23cm square pan with aluminium foil, so that the foil comes up over the sides (this allows you to lift out the slice).

3

4Step 2

5Place each pastry sheet on a baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper, then bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Set aside to cool.

6Once cool, place 1 pastry sheet, cooked-side up, in bottom of pan. (You may need to trim it slightly to fit.)

8Step 3

9Set slow cooker on high, I used a small one 2.4L

10Put the cornflour, sugar and custard powder in the slow cooker, and put the milk and vanilla mixture in and whisk until smooth,

11Then add cream, mix well.

12Place lid on slow cooker and let it cook for about 1 hour or until it thickens, stirring couple times in between.

13Add butter, stirring well to combine, then remove from heat and whisk in egg yolks, one at a time, until smooth.

14

15Step 4

16Pour into pastry-lined pan and set aside to cool slightly before placing other piece of pastry, cooked-side up, on top. Refrigerate overnight.

17Remove from pan, cut into squares and dust with icing sugar.

I made this the other night in my Russell and Hobbs 6L. It took nearly 2 hours to thicken which was incredibly frustrating but aside from that it was so easy to make and so worth it. Hubby took it to work and had at least three individuals approach him independently to say it was the best vanilla slice they have ever had!
