Let us Prepare for Holidays Step 1

Let us prepare for the holidays with a delicious
'Crema Pasticcera' that you can offer on its own or in  more complex desserts.

Crema Pasticcera

6 egg yolks
5 tablespoons of sugar
1 l. milk
5 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon potato starch
1 vanilla pod
Simmer milk in a saucepan with the vanilla pod.
In a separate bowl, work the egg yolks and sugar very well until it is creamy and frothy , pour the warm milk slowly  then  add the sifted flour and starch.
Continue to beat, remove the vanilla bean into the saucepan, add a little at a time and stirring with a whisk, the mixture of egg yolks, flour, sugar and milk.
Bring it to  a boil, and, stirring constantly, simmer on low heat for a few minutes until the mixture thickens, beating constantly with a whisk to avoid lumps
Turn off the heat and cool the cream, stirring occasionally. The cream is ready.
Chocolate Variation: add  to the  hot cream 100 gr. of  dark chocolate  melted in a bain marie/double boiler
For those who suffer from celiac disease, we recommend replacing the dose of flour with the gluten-free flour and gluten free chocolate
