A puff pastry tartlet dressed with orange water-flavoured pastry cream, the niflette is a speciality which comes from the town of Provins. Originally, it was only made for All Saints Day, but now it can be found for sale from mid-October to mid-November, as well as during the medieval festivals in June.

It is served piping hot and has medieval ancestry, its name coming from the Latin "ne flete", which means "cry no more". Legend has it that in olden times niflettes were given out to orphans on All Saints Day, as they came out of church.
