Crème au Beurre

by Richard Bertinet from Patisserie Maison

From Richard Bertinet's cookbook, creme au beurre is a great patisserie cream to master. The recipe features real butter, making for a thick and rich texture.

200g cold crème pâtissière
100g butter, cut into pieces and allowed to become very soft


Take your cold crème pâtissière from the fridge and whisk it until it has the consistency of a light mayonnaise, then whisk in the pieces of butter a little at a time until the cream is smooth and has turned quite white.
