Grease a deep-hollowed muffin tin and line 10 hollows with puff pastry.
Heat the sugar and water until the sugar has dissolved and simmer for two minutes.
Mix the cornflour with the milk, egg yolks, vanilla essence and sugar syrup.

Cool before spooning into the pastry shells. (Cover the custard with a sheet of wax paper while cooling to prevent a skin from forming.)
