Vanilla Chinois

Chinois de Vainilla con Crema Pastelera
I had fun making this Chinois  “Chinese Brioche”. Although it takes about two and a half hours from start to finish, it's worth the wait because the taste is delicious! I found this recipe  at Angie's blog, and she got it from Espe Saveedra’s  blog. Both have wonderful blogs full of great recipes, I recommend you to visit them.


Ingredients:
3 ¼ cups flour (375 g)
15 g of granulated yeast (Active Dry Yeast) - I used one envelope of 21 g = 2 ¼ teaspoons
¼ cup butter or margarine  (57g)
½ cup sugar (100 g) - original recipe calls for only 50 g
1 egg
½ cup lemon yogurt (125 ml)
1 tablespoon (45 g) of honey dissolved in 3 tablespoons milk (50 ml)
2 teaspoons of vanilla (10 ml)
1 ½ cup pastry cream
1 egg for wash
2 tablespoons of peach or apricot jam diluted

Preparation:
1. Prepare the pastry cream and cool or use store bought one.
2. Mix all ingredients. Following the appropriate instructions for the yeast you will be using.
3. Knead well until a smooth and elastic dough is formed. Let stand, covered with plastic wrap for 45 minutes.
4. When the dough has doubled in size, roll out with the help of a roller forming a rectangle. Then spread the pastry cream and roll up lengthwise like a roll . Cut into slices about ½ inch thick, and place in greased tray. Allow to rise covered for an hour.
5. Brush with 1 beaten egg and place in a preheated oven at 400ºF (200 ºC) for 40 minutes. If the top begins to brown, cover with foil. Prick with a knife to check if it is well done.
6. When done brush with 2 tablespoons of peach or apricot jam diluted with 2 tablespoons of water in the microwave for 20 secs.  Brush the chinois and serve.
