Last night , i didn’t cook for dinner .. i wasn’t feeling that well . Our son , had a sleep over at grandparent’s house , we just threw in frozen pizza in the oven . I had this awful strep throat .. and it was my first time ever had it , it was so painful and miserable !! So , anyway , i felt better later on that night , and after having some pizza , i thought why not throwing in this easy dessert together and we can have them .
I have pastry shells on hand , which always comes in handy , you can make dessert or main dish . I also had this mixed berries .. i meant .. it would have been better if the berries are in season , but oh well for now frozen berries work just fine ! LOL ..
As for the creme anglaise , it is very easy to make , and quick ,it’s just it takes time to chill them . But anyway here is how it looks
You will need :
1 box of pastry shell , bake as directed . Remove from the cookie sheet and cut the middle out to make a hole that you will fill with the creme anglaise and berries .
1 frozen mixed berries , sprinkle with sugar , let it sit to thaw out
Recipe for creme anglaise :
500 ml . milk ( i used 1 % milk )
3-4 tbsp. cornstarch
6 tbsp. sugar
2 egg yolks
1 tsp. of vanilla extract , or 1/2 vanilla beans , scraped the seed
In a small pot , add the milk , mixed 3-4 tbsp. cornstarch with 2 tbsp. milk , using whisk , mix well . Add sugar , cook medium heat , keep whisking . Beat the egg yolks , when the milk mixture is heating up and steaming , add 2-3 tbsp. into the beaten egg yolks , pour them in a slow stream into the milk mixture while u keep whisking . The mixture should get thick and remove from the heat . Chill overnight , add 2 capful of rum when the mixture is already chilled .
