'Cream' on Serious Eats

Tangy Strawberry Fools

The classic British fool, a dessert of fruit and whipped cream, is an ideal warm weather dessert because it's light and balance of sweet and tart fruit flavors. Juicy macerated strawberries, strawberry compote, and tangy yogurt are spooned into this refreshing, light version. More

Cream Potato Lefse From 'The New Midwestern Table'

Lefse is a Norwegian flatbread made with potatoes, cream, and a whole lot of care. Prepared and eaten at holiday gatherings, the tender bread requires finesse, experience, and many hands on deck to make properly. But, much like making homemade tortillas, the time and effort is worth it. Amy Thielen's recipe in The New Midwestern Table is a clear, specific, and helpful guideline for those wanting to dip their toes into lefse cookery. More

Lemon Cardamom Syllabub

On the list of great culinary innovations that Britain has given the world, desserts would be at the top. Although trifle and pudding are the most well-known, the humble syllabub is my personal favorite. What comes down to a flavored whipped cream is made more complex by the slight curdle the cream gets from citrus, and the sweet alcohol burn given to the cream by sugar and brandy. More

Chocolate Pastry Cream

This is a delicious chocolate version of pastry cream. Use it whenever recipes call for regular pastry cream for a chocolate treat. If you are using it as a pie filling, be sure to lighten it with whipped cream before using (optional directions below). More

Pork Braised in Milk and Cream

When searching in my kitchen for things to toss into my braising dish, milk and cream are not the first to jump out. But after a few conversations with a dear friend I was inspired to look into recipes for pork braised in milk and cream. The final product is moist and tender, and the milk and cream create a thick, curdled, porky sauce that is unlike anything I have ever tasted before. More

Pastry Cream

Pastry cream is ubiquitous in the dessert world. It's used to fill all sorts of treats, such as cakes, eclairs, cream puffs, fresh fruit tarts, and all kinds of French puff pastry items. It's a lot like pudding, but usually made richer and a bit thicker with the addition of extra egg yolks. Be sure to whip chilled pastry cream thoroughly before using to ensure that it is completely smooth. More

Blackberry Pistachio Icebox Cake

I love icebox cakes in the summer, when the thought of turning on an oven is too much to bear. This cake veers a bit from tradition, adding blackberries, pistachios, and pomegranate molasses in between layers of tea biscuits and rose water-infused whipped cream. It's sweet and creamy like an icebox cake should be, but tart berries and nutty pistachios keep things interesting. More
