About this recipeHere's an original crème brulée with pistachio flavor that I loved instantly
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 !

I am using the
Pistachio Paste(½ Cup or 100 g) instead of grinding pistachios, it's so easier !

Egg Yolks(3) and the
Sugar(⅓ Cup or 80 g)
2. In a saucepan, warm : the
Pistachio Paste(½ Cup or 100 g), the
Almond Extract(2 drops), the
Milk(1 Cup or 250 g) and the
Whipping Cream(1 Cup or 250 g)
Pistachio Pastewas too compact and I had to mix it using a hand blender
4. Bring to a boil
13. While it's baking, shake one ramekin and check the center : let them bake until they are barely softly set (almost liquid)
ResultThe contrast between the cold custard and the warm caramel is what makes this dessert so irresistable !
