An Infusion Of Flavor
(NAPSA) - The subtle infusion of herbs has long been the secret ingredient to many favorite entrees, but this timeless trend has evolved and can add an unexpected twist of flavor to desserts and beverages too.
Following are a few tips to infuse flavor into culinary creations by way of household herbs:
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Place ground cookies, butter and sugar in food processor; process until mixture clumps together. Press onto bottom of ungreased 9- or 10-inch tart pan with removable bottom.
Bake for 8 minutes or until golden. Cool in pan on wire rack.
Place morsels in large bowl; set aside. Whisk together evaporated milk and egg yolks in medium, heavy-duty saucepan. Stir in rosemary. Heat over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes or until mixture is very hot (not boiling) and thickens slightly. Strain mixture over morsels, pressing against rosemary to release flavor. Stir mixture until morsels are melted and mixture is completely smooth.
Pour into crust; refrigerate for 4 hours or until firm. Top each slice with dollop of whipped cream before serving.
No matter the herb, remember, fresh is best. Choose those vibrant in color and aroma. For storage, rinse herbs in cool water, remove dead stems, place into container filled with water, cover with plastic and refrigerate.
Herb infusions are simple and fun; they unlock a world of flavor and are a great way to enlighten your palate. For more trendsetting recipe ideas, visit VeryBest Baking.com.
