TWD- Caramel Pots de Creme

 
Did you miss me? Remember how I said I was back and would queue up some posts? We'll, you know what they say about good intentions. I am happy to report that my brother's wedding was wonderful and I got all the things baked in time that I needed to (come back for the Wednesday Want to see the engagement ring sugar cookies and one of the most important tool I needed to get everything done, besides my wonderful, helpful friends!)

So back to Tuesdays with Dorie. I made these Caramel Pots de Creme in hearts in John's honor last week but had a little date mix up so here I am on this Tuesday with them (see their blueberry brown sugar cakes here). Next time I make these I will try the chocolate flavor (yum!) and add salt again. I will also strain the custard before chilling since you never know and the texture is really important in these delicious little French custards. The ingredients are simple and you don't really need any extra equipment. I'd encourage you to give them a try- and watch the caramel carefully, I think mine was just over the edge, but we still enjoyed these. See the recipe from the wonderful Peggy  or buy Dorie's amazing book already and give them a try yourself. They have a fancy Frenchie name but it's really worth trying something new and with a little patience anyone can do it!

I absolutely loved these, even though my caramel went a little over the edge too. Love the heart ramekins!

I love how elegant those three little blackberries make the PDC look. Not to ignore the heart shaped pots as well.
