This classic recipe, from Julia Child, can be seen on Epicurious.com. It is so simple, yet so perfect – dense, slightly sweet vanilla custard, topped with fresh berries and a sprinkling of confectioners’ sugar. So satisfying.
Feel free to adapt to your own tastes – you could use any type of berries and even substitute 1 1/2 teaspoon almond extract for the 1 T vanilla, or add a Tablespoon or two of lemon juice to add a bit of lemon flavor.
Don’t worry about a crack or two on the surface, it’s a rustic dessert, and doesn’t mean you did anything wrong!
