step 1

In a medium pot add 500ml of milk, the sugar and vanilla extract, and stir them over medium heat until the sugar melts completely.

step 2

In a bowl add the rest of the milk and the corn flour, and whisk them until they are combined.

step 3

Add the mixed milk with the corn flour to the pot and stir continuously for about 4 minutes until the cream thickens and set aside.

step 4

In a small bowl add milk and dip each biscuit for a second (don’t deep them for too long or they’ll brake).

step 5

Place two layers of milk dipped petit beurre biscuits in a ovenproof dish (25x35cm).

step 6

Pour the cream over the biscuits and spread it with a spatula covering the whole surface (especially the sides), and refrigerate for 2 hours for the cream to chill.

step 7

While waiting for the cream to chill, use a large bowl to prepare the jelly. Add the jelly crystals and the boiling water and mix them until the crystals dissolve.

step 8

Continue by adding the cold water. Mix again and set aside for an hour to cool (not in the fridge).

step 9

Once the cream is completely chilled, use a ladle to add the liquid jelly slowly so that it stays on top of the cream and does slip under it.

step 10

Refrigerate for 3 hours until the jelly thickens.
