Preheat oven to 220 ºC. Roll out pastry to a 24 x 20 cm rectangle on a floured surface. Cut pastry into 6 rectangles with a sharp knife. Place on a large, ungreased baking sheet. Bcake for 15 minutes, or until pastry is puffed up and golden. Cool on a wire rack.
Place all ingredients except vanilla essence in a saucepan over medium to low heat and cook until mixture coats the back of a spoon – about 20 minutes. (Do not boil or it will curdle). Stir in vanilla essence. Cool, then chill for 30 minutes.
Sift icing sugar into a bowl and gradually add lemon juice, beating well.
Carefully split each puff pastry rectangle in half horizontally. Spread custard filling on bottom half of each rectangle. Place pastry top over filling and drizzle glacé icing over.
Makes 6.
