Lavender-White Chocolate Pots de Creme

This week at Tuesdays with Dorie we are cooking from Baking Chez Moi. Our final lavender recipe from both books, some in the group are very happy.

These pots de creme were a big hit in my house. This was a rich and delicious dessert that I served with a dollop of whip cream and one sable. I did not taste the lavender or the orange rind that I had steeped. I had one issue with the white chocolate, it floated to the top and made a crunchy crust. I thought this was an error but none of my guests complained. I think it had to do with the quality of my white chocolate. I sent two of these to my in-laws to have and my 89-year-old father-in-law called me to thank me for the wonderful dessert. He is my biggest fan but this dessert was over the top for him. To see what others thought head over to Tuesdays with Dorie.

    These were delish! And pairing these pots with the lavender-white chocolate sables is a great idea.


  2. I used excellent quality white chocolate and it made a skin on top 😦 These were too rich for me!


  3. Glad these were a hit in your house! Same over here…everyone loved them!


  4. i liked these, too, even though i’m just so-so on lavender as a flavor. mine didn’t get a crunchy crust, but it definitely had a darker yellow separation layer on top that i wish it hadn’t.

    Now I must really try this version – it seems to have been a hit with everyone who did.

    I didn’t make this dessert (it’s hard to find good quality, dairy-free white chocolate) but it sounds like I should keep this in mind when I have dinner guests that do eat dairy. This looks delicious!
