Coffee pot de creme is a luxurious French dessert. This smooth and silky custard can be flavored a thousand ways (i.e. chocolate, vanilla, orange) but this recipe focuses on coffee. The cream is heated until warm and then whisked with egg yolks to form the base. It is very important to strain the custard before baking it to ensure that there are no lumps. Pot de creme is simple enough to make everyday but elegant enough to serve at a dinner party.
