French Desserts

My collection of easy French desserts. What are the most popular desserts in France? Often they’re the simplest everyday recipes that we enjoy both at home and in many bistros or brasseries. To name 5 French desserts: crème caramel, chocolate mousse (without cream), Clafoutis (I have a few versions), Apple Custard Tart, and crêpes. Looking for Parisian desserts? The Pear Belle Hélène and Tarte Bourdaloue were actually created in Paris.
Many are ideal make-ahead desserts for entertaining. You’ll find my macaron and much more pâtisserie recipes in my books.

Looking for French cakes? You’ll find them in Teatime Recipes.
