Banana Sundae Puffs

The first step of making this dessert was to find my camera. I looked and looked. I looked for 40 minutes. Finally I began texting members of my family, "Have you seen my camera?"  Madison had seen it.  In fact she was looking at it because she had my Canon with her.  grrrrrr!

But I wanted to eat this dessert now!  I could not wait for her to return with my camera.  So, these photos are courtesy of my man's camera.  Because when a woman needs her dessert she cannot wait for her daughter to return her belongings!

Banana Sundae Puffsfrom Everyday Food
1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed and cut into circles (or squares, or triangles, whatever shape you have a cookie cutter of)
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup cocoa powder
4 ripe bananas, sliced thinly
vanilla bean ice cream
chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Place puff pastry on a parchment lined cookie sheet, 2 inches apart.  Bake 15 minutes until golden and puffed.  Cool on a wire rack.

In a medium pot, combine corn syrup, cream, butter, sugar, cocoa powder, and a pinch of salt.  Bring to a boil, whisking over medium heat.  Remove fudge sauce from heat and cool slightly.  

Time to assemble the Banana Sundae Puff!

 First Layer: golden, flaky, light puff

Second Layer: ripe, firm, sweet bananas

Third Layer: vanilla ice cream.  My favorite is vanilla bean thank you very much.

Fourth Layer: chocolate sauce.  One can never go wrong with chocolate sauce.

Fifth Layer: Add the walnuts.  No one in my family likes walnuts. 
But this dessert is mine so I can add the nuts.  Oh yes, I can!

A simple, delicious, and yet a little bit elegant dessert!
