Originating in France, creme Fraiche is now served in many countries, including the U.S. It is a soured cream containing about 28 percent milk fat. Enjoy it in recipes such as Pumpkin-Pear Bisque with Creme Fraiche, Red and Green Grapes with Creme Fraiche, Wild Pancakes with Smoked Trout and Creme Fraiche, or Strawberries with Creme Fraiche in Chocolate Cups.
Slow cooker desserts are the best stress-free option for dinner parties. This poached pear only gets sweeter when topped with a spoonful of cool creme fraiche on top.
Serve creme fraiche over fresh fruits or pound cake or use in recipes as directed.
Prepare the elegant chocolate cups and fill as much as 24 hours before serving. Once assembled, refrigerate the desserts no more than 4 hours.
Creme fraiche and cranberry-tangerine sauce nestle in phyllo cups for just the right balance of richness and tang.
