…only nine days late! After seeing all the coeur à la crème posts last week, I was chomping at the bit to make mine this week. Coeur à la crème is nothing new to me. I first made this dessert when I purchased Ina Garten’s Barefoot in Paris at a book signing in 2005. My sister (Codename: Chunklet’s mom) immediately honed in on Ina’s coeur à la crème recipe and asserted that I needed to buy a “heart-shaped pan with perforations.” After buying the pan and cheesecloth (for the first time ever), my experience with coeur à la crème was born. This dessert was as expected: delicious, rich, and creamy. I served it with a four berry coulis and graham crackers on the side, just in case anyone missed having a crust.
This coeur à la crème made as a part of French Fridays with Dorie, a group of bloggers who are cooking their way through Dorie Greenspan’s Around My French Table: More Than 300 Recipes from My Home to Yours.
