Answer: CREME BRULEE
Sugar-topped custard dessert recipe
The classic French dessert of crème brûlée is always popular, and I have used that delicious sugar-topped custard dessert to fill these delicate tarts. Make these ahead for a dinner party and simply caramelize the tops before serving.
For the pie crust, place the digestive biscuits in a food processor or blender and blitz to fine crumbs, or place in a clean plastic bag and bash with a rolling pin. Stir in the melted butter, ensuring that all the crumbs are well coated. Press the crumbs into the base and sides of the pans.
For the brûlée filling, whisk the egg yolks, sugar and vanilla salt until thick and creamy. Heat the cream in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Pour the hot cream over the egg mixture, whisking constantly, and then return the custard mixture to the pan. Heat gently, whisking constantly, until the mixture thickens. Take care not to overcook the custard, otherwise is will scramble. Pour the custard into the tartlet pans and let cool, then chill in the refrigerator for 2–3 hours.
