HIC's Pot de Creme Custard Cups are designed for making and enjoying the specialty French custard known by the same name. Pot de creme, meaning pot of cream, is a rich custard made from eggs, cream, milk, and flavoring. It's baked in a water bath at low a temperature, then chilled until lightly set, and topped with whipped cream when served. Unlike thicker custards, like flan, or creme caramel, the thinner consistency of pot de creme is best served in custard cups with lids. From chocolate pot de creme to vanilla, butterscotch, even pumpkin spice, HIC's Pots de Creme are the perfect porcelain bakeware for making this delicate dessert. They double nicely for serving other dessert and custard recipes, or for soups, like seafood bisque and potato soup, even oatmeal and beverages, like hot chocolate. Sturdy handles allow for easy sipping and serving, and lids help keep hot contents warm. HIC's Pots de Creme perform beautifully as serveware at every dining occasion, from breakfast to lunch or brunch, for holiday meals, party buffets, even outdoor entertaining. A tradition since 1957, HIC Fine Porcelain Bakeware and Serveware is safe for use in the microwave, oven, broiler, and freezer and won't transfer odors, colors or flavors between uses. These custard cups are dishwasher safe, making cleanup a breeze.
