4. Cook over low heat, while whisking, until it reaches 84°C.

5. Once the english cream has cooked, pour over the hydrated gelatin and mascarpone cream. Add the Orange blossom and mix with a hand blender.

6. Let it cool down around 30°C.

7. Whip the liquid cream until soft peaks.

8. Gently incorporate the previous mixture to the whipped cream.

9. Fill the 5,5cm mold to 3/4 (~30g per cavity) and freeze overnight.

For the Sweet Crust:

1. Cream the softened butter with the sugar. Add the eggs little by little. Make sure the mixture is smooth.

2. Add the pistachio powder, salt, flour and corn starch. Mix a few seconds until everything is incorporated.

3. Refrigerate the dough overnight or a few hours.

4. Roll out the dough to a 2mm thickness over a floured surface. Cut 12cm disks.

5. Slightly grease your pie rings. Add the disk over the ring and press the dough against the edges. Press the bottom to create a perfect right angle.

6. Cut the surplus and prick the bottom with a fork. Freeze for a few minutes.

For the Pistachio Cream:

1. Cream the softened butter with the icing sugar. Add the eggs and pistachio powder.

2. Set aside.

3. Preheat the oven to 160°C. Cook the pies for 10-12min. It should start to color.

4. Wait until they cool down a bit before removing the rings.

5. Make the wash by combining the egg yolk with the cream. Brush the edges and bottom of the pies with the wash. The layer should be very thin.

6. Pipe the pistachio cream at the bottom (~30g per pie). Cook for approximately 10 more minutes. The pistachio cream should be golden.

7. Let it cool down at room-temperature.

For the Crémeux:

1. Bring to boil the cream.

2. Pour over the chopped white chocolate and pistachio paste. Mix with a hand blender.

3. Pour the Cremeux inside the cooled pies. Let it cristallise at room temperature for a few hours.

For the Neutral Glaze:

1. Hydrate the gelatin.

2. Heat the water and sugar to 103°C.

3. Add the gelatin.

4. Use between 20-22°C.

It’s time to assemble!

1. Preheat the oven to 140°C. Spread the shredded filo dough over a baking tray. Cook until it has a beautiful golden color. Mix from time to time to have an homogenous cooking.

2. Let it cool down.

3. Unmold the orange blossom mousse. Glaze with the neutral glaze.

4. Prick the centre of the mousse with a toothpick and cover the mousse with the cooked filo dough. Place in the middle of the pie.

5. Decorate with some pistachios around the mousse and add a gold leaf at the top.
