    Directions

    1. We start with the Crème Pâtissière because it needs a long time to cool off. Some people recommend 2 hours some others say 4 hours, while mine gets cooled in about 3, so let's say you will need about 2 to 4 hours for this. So, heat the milk with vanilla in a sauce pan.
    2. In a bowl mix the egg yolks with sugar and vanilla sugar until light in colour. Add the flour and incorporate well. Pour the hot milk over and whisk. Pour back in the pan and boil until thick using a rubber spatula to prevent from sticking to the bottom. Boil for only 1 more minute after you start seeing bubbles. Remove from fire, mix in the brandy, if using, and stir to incorporate.
    3. Lay down some plastic foil in a dish and pour the cream. Cover and wrap in plastic foil and cool at room temperature. After 2 h turn on the other side to coll evenly. Whisk or stir before using, to get rid of any lumps.
