Puff pastry Christmas brioche {vegan}

brioche de Noël

Et voilà comme en un rien de temps on se retrouve pour le dessert ! Comme je ne suis pas très classique pas de bûche par chez moi et pas d’entremets non plus. On mise cette année sur la simplicité (enfin en apparence) et le goût avec cette brioche feuilletée de Noël tressée. L’idée de ce dessert c’est clairement de casser les codes du dessert de Noël, de faire quelque chose qui sort de l’ordinaire et qui plus est plaira à tous (oui qui n’aime pas la pâte à croissant ?!!!).

This is the kind of dessert I would like to eat for the holidays,

a puff pastry brioche with citrus fruits and dried fruits, inspiration from thirteen desserts from the south of France. This puff pastry brioche can be served as is or accompanied by a scoop of sorbet or ice cream if you are greedy (and my little fingers tell me that you are !). Unfortunately, I didn't have time to take photos or drawings of the steps of turning and braiding the brioche.. If ever my explanations are too obscure for you, you can easily find the step by step on the internet. I hope you will like this recipe and that it will be part of your tables during the end of the year celebrations. See you very soon for a little last… to your predictions !
