    This recipe has been posted for ZWT II & my source is This recipe wasn't very "Post Your Recipe" friendly as it expressed everything in both metric & US measurements, so I had to make a choice again (Time does not include cooling time)

      A very classy dessert. I wasn't so easy preparing it because I was afraid if the creme parissiere! Not anymore!!! This is a keeper creme. So elegant! I 'm thinking of using it again on fresh fruit tarts!!! It was the first time that I made a dessert using plums. And now I'm wondering why? Such an elegant compination! Thanks very much for this great recipe!
