Lemon & Cheese Puff

I am a huge fan of Puff Pastry.  Who isn't"  I always have some in the refrigerator or freezer.  I only buy the all butter kind.  It is well worth any additional expense for that in both texture and flavour.  I am also a huge fan of lemon curd.  I often make my own.  

You can find my recipe for that here.   It's really good, but a good commercial lemon curd will also work well in this recipe.  This recipe combines my two great loves.  Puff pastry and Lemon Curd, in a most delicious way.

This is a beautiful bake which looks a lot more complicated than it is.  If you have all of the elements ready prior to putting the finished braid togethe, it goes together very quickly.  Make sure your puff pastry is nice and cold and you will have no problem with it.
It does stretch a bit as you are overlapping it as it warms up, but that's no problem, just work quickly from as cold a pastry as you can.  If you need to pop the tray back into the refrigerator after you score and cut it prior to braiding it, then do it.  Its worth the extra time that it will take to do so.  But really, if you work quickly it won't be necessary.

It's so flaky and moreish.  I like to dust it with some icing sugar to pretty it up, and in all honesty, even if your braiding isn't an excellent job, it will still look pretty, and the taste  . . . oh my goodness.  This is just so delicious!

I do the same thing at Christmas with mincemeat and its gorgeous as well.  Lemon curd though . . .  you can't beat it. this goes down very well with a nice hot drink in the morning for your coffee break, or for a leisurely weekend brunch!
