caramelized-coffee bean pots de crème

Pots de crème are luxurious baked custards (pots of cream! and egg yolks!), and these Caramelized-Coffee Bean Pots de Crème are flavored with cracked coffee beans further roasted and toasted in caramelized sugar. Pots de crème are rich, and a small-ish serving will do. I baked these babies off in some cute little French yogurt pots that I had to go all the way to Europe to collect! Turns out it was worthwhile trip. I served my cream pots with a little whipped cream and some chocolate covered espresso beans.

For the recipe, see Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll.

  1. So elegant in these jars! I have misplaced ALLLL my jars like this (though we can buy them here now too). I made mine in tea cups but much prefer the look in the jars – looks “proper” !

  2. I was looking for my chocolate covered espresso beans but they must have been eaten:) I have one little yogurt jar but mine was free and probably isn’t oven safe, LOL. We loved this coffee dessert. Have a lovely Thanksgiving.

  3. The jars (and the pots de creme) are absolutely perfect.

  4. “Luxurious” is such a good description for this dessert and it certainly looks it in your pretty pot.

  5. restaurant worthy…beautiful!

  6. These little pots were da bomb!
