Almond custard is not a typical New Year’s Eve dessert, but doesn’t the almond custard look so elegant in the champagne glass? Remember – your resolution to lose weight doesn’t kick in until after the New Year, so toast and enjoy!
Almond Custard Recipe
I definitely recommend moving it to the champagne glass.
Also, I should point out that this was taken right out of the oven.
As the custard cooled, it became thicker and less drippy.I got the almond custard recipe from my Taste & Create partner, Temperance, at High on the Hog. Temperance got the recipe from Abba off of a Daring Bakers forum. Temperance made the custard with strawberries, but I opted for some blueberries – any berry would work just fine.
