Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 40 min.

Prepare the sablé base with 350 g Breton sablé biscuit dough, as explained here.

Leave to cool, then use a brush to coat the top with 50 g white chocolate, melted over a bain-marie. Leave to set.

This coating stops the crémeux topping soaking into the sablé base, helping it to stay crisp.

Stage 2 - 3 min.

Sit the sablé base on a sheet of cooking parchment, laid on a baking sheet, and place a dessert ring over it.

Stage 3 - 40 min.

Prepare a verbena crémeux, follwing the method for fruit crémeux, but replace the coulis with verbena-infused cream (heat the cream, then leave the verbena to infuse).

Pour on top of the sablé base.

Leave to set in the fridge for about an hour.

Stage 4 - 3 min.

Stage 5 - 15 min.

Stage 6 - 5 min.

Remarks

This trio of sablé-crémeux-fruit works very well and lends itself to many variations. Another great topping duo is lime with strawberries, or why not try lemon with raspberries?
