Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 15 min.
Pear verbena tarts
Prepare 150 g Confectioner's custard (Crème pâtissière, or French pastry cream) using the normal method, but at the start leave a handful of verbena leaves to infuse in the milk (instead of the vanilla).

This will give you a verbena-flavoured custard.

Cover and leave to cool.

Stage 2 - 5 min.
Pear verbena tarts
Cut 4 Poached pears into small pieces and drain carefully.

Remarks
For a quicker, simpler version of this recipe, use a classic sweetcrust pastry and a simple confectioner's custard (without added whipped cream).

If you have any leftover cream and fruit (which often happens, I assure you), make little verrines by layering the pears in small glasses with a generous topping of cream.
Keeping
Should be eaten the same day.
