Rich Custard

Crema Pasticcera Classica
This recipe for Custard is the richest formulation with 40 yolks per liter of milk. The resulting cream will be of extraordinary finesse. It will be excellent for filling puff pastry cannoncini or for making an excellent millefeuille. For the success of this cream, it is essential that cooking takes place at a relatively low temperature and that the subsequent cooling of the Custard is very fast to stop the cooking of the egg.
