Does anyone have a great pastry creme or bavarian creme recipe that they would like to share? I am looking for one that I can use as a filling. Thanks!
1 cup whole milk
3 lg egg yolks
1/3 cup sugar
2 tbs cornstarch
2 tbs butter
flavoring (see below)
Heat milk to simmering over medium heat.
Whisk together egg yolks and sugar; add cornstarch and stir until smooth.
While constantly beating with whisk, gradually pour about 1/2 cup of milk into egg mixture. Pour egg mixture into remaining milk and cook, stirring constantly, until boiling and thickened, about 1 minute.
Remove saucepan from heat and stir in butter and flavoring. Transfer to shallow bowl (I prefer a glass pie pan) and lay a sheet of plastic wrap directly on the surface and refrigerate until completely cool.
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp raspberry extract
1-2 tbs Bailey's Irish Cream (to taste)
1-2 tbs Amaretto liqueur (to taste)
1 tsp grated lime or lemon peel
Thank you, I will try it this weekend!
