Basically, Pots de Creme is a rich vanilla custard, even though it is often thought of as being chocolate flavored.

Ingredients

1 cup half-and-half
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 whole egg
2 egg yolks

Directions

1. Scald half-and-half with the sugar. Cool slightly and add the vanilla.

2. Beat egg and egg yolks until light and lemon colored. Add hot half-and-half, stirring constantly. Strain through a fine sieve into 4 small custard cups or pots.

3. Set in a pan of hot water. Cover. Bake at 325 F for 20 to 25 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Do not overcook or custard will become watery.

4. You may serve Pots de Creme with mounds of slightly sweetened whipped cream.
