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.

Ingredients

  • 250 grams all purpose flour
  • 80 grams sugar
  • 100 grams butter
  • 50 milliliters milk
  • 3 egg yolks
  • grated lemon peel
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 750 grams whole milk
  • 250 grams heavy cream (or equal doses of whole milk, but the heavy cream gives a velvety consistency and a much better result overall)
  • 120 grams cornstarch
  • 30 grams butter
  • 200 grams powdered sugar
  • 5 egg yolks (+ 2 whole eggs)
  • 1 vanilla bean

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 190C.
  2. Begin preparing the dough by kneading the butter, sugar, egg yolks, grated lemon peel, and the vanilla.
  3. Add the flour and the milk and continue kneading.
  4. Let the dough rest for at least 30 minutes in a cool place, but do not refrigerate.
  5. Roll out the dough and place it in a 23 centimeter pie plate.
  6. Refrigerate for approximately 30 minutes and then make some holes in the crust with a fork.
  7. Bake the pie crust for 10 minutes on the lower rack with a wax paper pouch filled with rice and beans or nuts. The wax paper should be wet and wrung out.
  8. Place the cornstarch and the sugar in a large saucepan and add the 750 grams of cold milk.
  9. Place the saucepan on the stove on low heat until the cream thickens.
  10. Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the heavy cream, the vanilla bean, the butter, and, very delicately, add the eggs, so they do not curdle.
  11. Pour the cream into the pie crust and bake at 180C for approximately 30 to 35 minutes (depending on the oven).
  12. Cool the flan and then refrigerate it, so it can set completely.
