1 1/2 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
Pinch of salt
Method for Chevre White Chocolate Pots de Creme:
- In medium size sauce pan, bring heavy cream to a boil.
- Remove from heat and stir in white chocolate and Chevre until melted.
- In blender – place egg yolks, sugar, vanilla, and salt. While running blender, pour warm cream / chevre / white chocolate mixture over egg yolks. Blend until smooth.
- Your oven should now be at 325 degrees.
- Prepare a pan water bath for your ramekins, using very hot water. Place ramekins in the water bath. Water level should be half way up the ramekins.
- Fill ramekins almost full. Cook in water bath at 325 degrees just until center is set. KEY POINT: The center should still have a slight jiggle to it, not a loose wavy motion. If you have the slightest doubt, don’t over cook. The custard will firm more when chilled.
- Remove and cool.
- Then chill for service (about 3 hours).
- Serve with fresh whipped cream and seasonal fruit.
