The Cookie Crust

Although not always the case, cookie crusts reign king when handcrafting classic cream pies. A variety of styles may be used in order to create a truly custom dessert.

Other than that, a little sugar, butter & oven or freeze time will have these foundations ready quickly.

Fillings that begin with a pastry cream need four vital components: a baseline liquid, a thickening agent, egg yolks which add a richness to them & a sweetener. Other than that, extracts & additional ingredients may be used in order to create custom flavors & profiles.
