Coffee Custard Slices made using Puff Pastry ! Quickly and easily

I always buy custard slices at the bakery as it (used to!) look like a lot of work and I really love them.

That changed since I started to make these Coffee Custard Slices and I even change the flavor now and then to the more traditional custard which is a vanilla flavor.

This recipe is so quick, easy and I am always guaranteed of delicious custard slices which has never failed.

Besides buying a slice at a bakery, can be very costly ! This recipe is so economical and you should already have all the ingredients on hand.
