This is one of two versions of Caramel Pots de Creme we have on our site. This version is adapted from a Martha Stewart recipe and it does not add any liquid to the sugar when making the caramel. This gives the pots de creme a very rich flavor.
Frango Mint Pots de Creme - This pot de creme recipe is made with the famous Frango Mints. Frango mints are a flat, minty, chocolate wafer that dates back to 1918 but popularized by Chicago's Marshall Field and Company. They can still be found distributed now by Macy's stores.
These rich, tart little treats are simply a variation on key lime pie.
A coffee pots de creme made with strong coffee, espresso powder, kahlua, eggs and sugar.
The simple recipe is in "Daniel Boulud's Cafe Boulud Cookbook" (Simon & Schuster, 1999). The lemon pot de creme is served with sevruga or osetra caviar.
