Diplomatic saffron cream and blackberries

Diplomatic cream with saffron and composed of blackberries

Diplomatic cream with saffron and composed of blackberries: a sweet quick and delicious spoon, to which nobody, but no one, can say no. The cream diplomatic, that often in Italy it is called improperly cream chantilly (the original French is made only with whipped cream, powdered sugar and vanilla), It is very sweet and soft. Saffron gives the diplomatic cream and a special color and a taste is enriched by a compote of fresh blackberries, slightly acidic, and toasted pistachios.

The combination of saffron and fruit I liked it so much that I also created another similar sweet, but a little’ more complex and elegant: the SAFFRON CREAM WITH BERRIES AND LAND OF COCOA AND HAZELNUTS, perfect for a dinner in which you want to impress someone.

You can replace the blackberries, using the same cooking process, even with blueberries or raspberries: all berries blend perfectly with the saffron and its intense and enveloping. You can also use strawberries, paying attention to the fact that release more water for other berries. Try and let me know. I find that desserts such as diplomatic cream are also a perfect dessert for the holidays, because it is easy to prepare, It can be done in advance and looks great: sink the spoon in this soft sweet tooth will delight all. And if you look for some ideas, have a look to all my CHRISTMAS MENU. Have a good day.
