This was a favorite dish my daughter served at catering events. It is very tasty and makes an elegant presentation. I have tried to simplify it a bit, but you can "gussy" it up with mint sprigs, coconut sprinkles or other garnishments as your desire.

Note: The prep time includes the time required to chill in the refrigerator.

Enjoy

6
extra large egg yolks
1-1/4 c
granulated sugar
3 c
heavy cream
1-1/2 tsp
real mexican vanilla
1 c
fresh raspberries
6 to 8
frozen pastry shells (preformed)

RASPBERRY SAUCE

1 c
fresh raspberries
1/2 c
granulated sugar
2 Tbsp
dry white wine
1/4 c
water

Step-By-Step

1Bake pastry shells at 350ºF until light toasty brown and set aside. (about 5 minutes)

2Lightly whisk egg yolks.

Place eggs and 1/2 cup of sugar in the top half of a double boiler over very hot water over medium heat

3Vigorously whisk until lemon colored and the consistency of mousse. Remove from heat and set aside.

4Place cream, remainder of sugar and vanilla in a heavy saucepan over medium heat.

Bring to a boil, then immediately remove from heat.

Slowly pour into egg yolks mixture, whisking rapidly as you pour.

5Return double boiler back to medium heat.

Cook, stirring constantly until mixture is quite thick (about 10 minutes)

6Remove top half of double boiler and place in a bowl of ice.

Stir occasionally while mixture cools until it reaches the consistency of a very thick custard.

7Spread a single layer of fresh raspberries over the bottom of baked puff pastry shells.

Spoon cooled crème over raspberries to the top of the shells.

8Place in refrigerator for at least 3 hours up to 8 hours.

9When chilled, sprinkle 2 tablespoon sugar over each filled shell.

OPTIONS:

If you have a hand held kitchen butane torch, you can use it to caramelize the sugar.

If you don't have a torch, place shells on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper about 6 inches away from broiler flame for about 3 minutes or until sugar caramelized.

DO NOT OVERCOOK OR CREME WILL MELT.

10immediately remove from heat. Pour raspberry sauce over the bottom of 6 dessert plates.

Place a crème brulee in the center of each and serve immediately.
