Fancy pudding. That’s what creme anglaise is, essentially. This recipe is a little putsy because you have to cook the cream over the stove, but other than that it is fairly simple, and I think any cook could be successful with this recipe! The result is a very creamy dessert that has just a hint of the brandy and vanilla flavors. There was no recommendation for serving, but I jazzed it up a bit with lemon wafer cookies and morello cherries. It was a satisfying little dessert, but I would only make it again to accompany something a little more show-stopping.

Make Again? Maybe?
