You'll find my party post here.

Baked Egg Custard
Beat 4 eggs in the blender until light. Add a pinch of salt, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and blend well. Add 1 cup of whipping cream. Mix well. Pour into baking dish or individual cups. Place baking dishes in a pan of hot water. Bake @ 300 until shimmering, about 1 hour.
Top with whipped cream and fresh berries or other topping of your choice.
Crumiri Cornmeal Cookies
Crumiri Cornmeal Cookies are originally an Italian cookie, but they are a wonderful little treat to serve along with rich custard. These gems aren't very sweet and the added crunch with the cornmeal gives them a nice texture along side the smooth custard. I sprinkled green sugar on top of each little crumiri button to add to celebrate the green.
You can find a copy of the recipe I used here. I didn't have a good piping bag, so I opted to roll the dough into small balls and top with the green sugar.
Irish coffee is a favorite treat here.
Simply add a jigger of Irish whisky
to a cup of your favorite dark, rich coffee.
Then top it off with sweet whipped cream.
Wishing each of you a
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
