These little caffe mocha pots are one of those magical desserts that are embarrassingly simple to make but are elegant enough to be worthy of a very special occasion. If you aren’t familiar with the term, pot de crème means pot of custard. If you want to sound all French about it, it’s pronounced po-duh-crem. Basically, it’s a cooked custard made of just a few ingredients that you most likely have in your kitchen right now.
These are simply a pleasure to eat. It’s smooth and creamy so silky. You can serve it at room temperature. I just have to have that dollop of whipped cream on top. For this pot de creme I baked it with pate sucree crust. This dough is similar to pate brisee, but it us further enriched with egg yolks and more sugar. Bon Appétit!
