About a month ago I read a devotional that asked that same question? In my reading the answer the person gave was not your typical answer given – she said, “I bring hope to people who are hurting.” I loved that answer (her occupation – a clerk in a local grocery store. She paid attention to her customers; if someone looked stressed or sad she would give them a kind word, a smile. Something to brighten their day.) What a wonderful thing to do. What a wonderful way to be.
This persons answer to that questions made me think – What do I do, really? A typical answer from me would be: I am an artist, a food photographer, and an art teacher. Now I think a better answer would be – I bring out the creativity in a person and give them something to enjoy in life.
So today, on this beautiful fall day, please allow me to bring out your creativity and try something new. A simple, but elegant dessert with the taste of cinnamon.
(yield: 6 servings)
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup milk
3/4 cup sugar
5 cinnamon sticks
6 large eggs
Pinch of salt
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a heavy saucepan, over medium heat, bring the cream, milk, 1/4 cup of the sugar, and the cinnamon sticks to a simmer.
|After removing from the oven|
5. Right before serving, sprinkle the remaining sugar in a thin, even coating on the surface of each custard, using 2 teaspoons for each one. Use a preheated broiler or blowtorch to caramelize the sugar. In a broiler it will take 1 to 2 minutes, and it will take about 30 seconds with a blowtorch.
Thanks for taking time to visit!
