Last weekend we were invited to a garden party. I was offering to bring the dessert, so I chose to make this delicious and simple cheesecake cream. We had a wonderful time, lots of drinks and great food.
This caramel pastry cream is one of my all time favorite dessert. It’s simple and smooth and while it’s creamy, it’s not overly rich. The caramel is made by boiling together sugar and water to form a caramel syrup. Depending on what you like, your syrup can be a light amber color or a deep, rich golden hue which makes for a richer contrast in flavors.
