What does fall mean to you, other than the leaves changing color and the days becoming shorter? I won’t be surprised if the answer is pumpkin. Yes, pumpkin means autumn to many of us.
But it also means cinnamon and nutmeg. Honey and maple syrup. Brown sugar and apples. It means good food. Home. Family.
Did I say maple??
Maple syrup, of all these ingredients, embodies autumn the most to me. It has the richness of brown sugar and honey, the warmth of spices, the sweetness of apples, the color of pumpkin (somewhat.)
I’m greeting autumn with these ultra-maply, super smooth pots de crème. If you’ve never made pots de crème, you’ll be surprised by how easy to make they are!
