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

  • 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.

    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.
