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

Step-by-Step

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

  6. Remove 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.

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