Vanilla Bean Pudding and Raspberry Parfait
- Active Time 25m
- Total Time 9h 25m
Spoon the favorite old-fashioned vanilla pudding into an elegant wine goblet and layer it between fresh raspberries to give it a sophisticated twist.
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1/4 teaspoon coarse (kosher) salt
- 1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise in half
- 2 cups half and half
- 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons heavy cream
- 2 large egg yolks
- 2 tablespoons brandy
- 6 ounces fresh raspberries
Combine sugar, cornstarch and salt in heavy medium saucepan. Scrape
in seeds from vanilla bean; reserve bean pod. Whisk until no corn-
starch lumps remain. Very gradually whisk in half and half, then 1/4 cup
cream and egg yolks. Add reserved vanilla bean pod. Whisk over medium heat
until pudding thickens and boils (large bubbles will break on surface),
about 8 minutes. Reduce heat to low and whisk 2 minutes longer.
Transfer pudding to medium bowl. Press plastic wrap directly
onto surface. Refrigerate pudding until cold and set, at least 8 hours
and up to 1 day.
Remove vanilla bean and discard. Whisk pudding to loosen. Add brandy. Add remaining 2 tablespoons
cream to loosen pudding, if necessary. Whisk until smooth. Spoon 1/3 cup pudding into each of four 9- to 12-ounce wine goblets or parfait glasses. Top each with several berries. Repeat layering with remaining pudding and berries. Cover and chill up to 8 hours.
