My baked puff pastry triangles are filled with hot vanilla and rum flavored cooked bananas and my Vanilla Bean Pastry Cream. They are then drizzled with my Chocolate Ganache Dessert Sauce and sprinkled with sliced and toasted almonds. They are a take-off of Bananas Foster, a similar dessert. Legend has it that Bananas Foster was created in 1951 in the famed Brennan’'s Restaurant in New Orleans by Chef Paul Blange and named after a frequent customer Richard Foster. The dessert is so popular, that Brennan’'s uses thirty-five thousand pounds of bananas each year. If you don't have the time to make the pastry cream, just use my Instant Pastry Cream Variation, included with this recipe, or substitute it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Frozen puff pastry is available in the freezer section of a grocery store. Of course, you can always make your own Puff Pastry recipe!
