Pierre Hermé’s Pistachio Crème Brûlée2017-01-29
A great recipe from Pastry Master Pierre Hermé, for a creamy custard based Creme brulée and Pistachio lovers
As a result I kept eating Crema Catalanas and not Creme Brulées, until the day I stumbled on a recipe from Pierre Hermé and I just fell in love with it.
Thanks to this recipe, I have now switched back to Creme Brulées !

Be aware that lots of blogs mention this recipe, but with mistakes. I am giving you the authentic one here!

Pistachio Paste(½ Cup or 100 g), the
Almond Extract(2 drops), the
Milk(1 Cup or 250 g) et the
Whipping Cream(1 Cup or 250 g)

4. Bring to a boil
11. While it’s baking, shake one ramekin and check the center : let them bake until they are barely softly set (almost liquid)
Cooling down12. Take the ramekins out, let them cool down at room temperature.
Placing the ramekins in the fridge to cool completely for at least
2 hours. This can even be done overnight without affecting the texture.
