Tuesdays with Dorie: Caramel Pots de Creme
I'm happy to announce that these Caramel Pots de Creme may have just convinced me that I can actually make pots de creme at home. After my first experience making pots de creme two months ago, I thought, "eh, I'll just order these at restaurants and make other custard-type desserts at home." I just didn't get pots de creme, or so I thought. It's funny how we expect perfection in one attempt.
Caramel is one of my all-time favorite flavors. So I knew there was a chance that even if I didn't get the texture of these pots de creme right, I would probably still like the flavor. Well, I think I did a prety good job at both. I really enjoyed these. Huge warning: they are super rich. An ideal size for me would be like a shot class.
You can grab the recipe on Peggy the Baker's blog. Also check out the Tuesday with Dorie Leave Your Link post to read about and see the other TWD baker's Caramel Pots de Creme dishes.
