A great recipe from Pastry Master Pierre Hermé, for a creamy custard based Creme brulée and Pistachio lovers

Thanks to this recipe, I have now switched back to Creme Brulées !

| In a saucepan, warm :|
|Pour in the mixture: Hermé mentions 0.39" (or 25/64" or 1 cm) deep, yet I prefer 0.78" (or 25/32" or 2 cm)…|
BakingPlace in the oven and bake at 245 °F/120 °C
|While it’s baking, shake one ramekin and check the center : let them bake until they are barely softly set (almost liquid)|
Cooling downTake 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.
CaramelizingYou will need a torch which is the best method.
Otherwise, you can use the broiler of your oven
|The contrast between the cold custard and the warm caramel is what makes this dessert so irresistable !|
