Ingredients

Directions

  1. 1 of 6 Heat oven to 350 degree F. Line the bottom of a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan with paper towels.
  2. 2 of 6 Split vanilla bean in half. Scrape out seeds, then add seeds and bean to a small, heavy saucepan. Whisk in milk. In a medium-size bowl, whisk together egg yolks and sugar until well blended. Heat the milk gently in a small saucepan just until it reaches simmering. Remove the saucepan from the heat.
  3. 3 of 6 Whisk about 1 cup of the hot milk into yolk mixture; then whisk the yolk mixture into the hot milk in the saucepan. Pour mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into a 4-cup glass measuring cup to remove any cooked pieces of egg.
  4. 4 of 6 Put six 6-ounce ramekins or custard cups in paper- towel-lined pan. Divide mixture equally among the ramekins.
  5. 5 of 6 Place baking pan with ramekins on middle rack in oven. Carefully pour hot water into baking pan until it reaches halfway up the sides of ramekins.
  6. 6 of 6 Bake pots de creme in water bath in a 350 degree F oven for 45 minutes or until centers are just set. Remove baking pan from oven; carefully remove ramekins from water bath to cooling racks. Refrigerate until thoroughly chilled, 3 hours or overnight. Garnish with raspberries.
