Description

French custard pie — a.k.a. Parisian flan — is at once beautiful, luxe and easy to make. It all starts with par-baked dough that incorporates lemon zest; it's then filled with an egg-yellow, vanilla-spiked custard that's thickened with cornstarch. After baking until it nearly sets, the pie must be cooled and then refrigerated before serving. Given it's prepared in advance, this is an ideal option for a dinner party or family meal.
