Pistachio Crème Anglaise

  • SERVINGS: MAKES 2 CUPS
  • MAKE-AHEAD

The almond extract, although optional, adds more rich, nutty flavor to the silky crème anglaise.

  1. 1 cup shelled unsalted pistachios (4 ounces)
  2. 2 cups milk
  3. 1/2 cup sugar
  4. Salt
  5. 8 large egg yolks
  6. 1/2 teaspoon pure almond extract (optional)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Spread the shelled pistachios on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes, or until lightly toasted. Let cool completely, then rub the pistachios in a kitchen towel to remove the skins. Transfer the pistachios to a food processor and grind to a fine powder.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine the milk with the pistachios and bring to a boil. Cover, remove from the heat and let stand for 30 minutes.
  3. Strain the pistachio milk through a fine sieve into another medium saucepan. Add the sugar and a pinch of salt. Whisk in the egg yolks and cook over low heat, whisking constantly, until the custard sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 8 minutes. Do not let the custard boil.
  4. Strain the sauce through a fine sieve into a bowl. Stir in the almond extract and let cool, stirring often. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Make Ahead The crème anglaise can be refrigerated for 2 days. Serve With Semolina Soufflç Cake
