Blackberries with Sweet Tequila and Lime Cream

This is an adaptation of a recipe created by The Pioneer Woman. She created this for a restaurant in Denver, according to the story that accompanied the original recipe. It's basically Fresh Blackberries served in individual bowls, drizzled with this Sweet Tequila and Lime Cream. I know a lot of Texans that would love this. I look forward to making it this summer.

Here's what you'll need:
A Double Boiler. You can create one with a Glass Bowl over a Saucepan of simmering water or use a
conventional double boiler like the one I have.

This is my French Copper Double Boiler.

Tequila and Lime Sweet Cream

1 Pint of Heavy Cream
1 C Sugar, divided
10 Egg Yolks
2 tsp Vanilla
4 TBS Gold Tequila
2 TBS Lime Zest
Fresh Blackberries

In a medium saucepan on medium heat:
1/2 C Sugar
Simmer, stirring constantly until the Sugar is completely dissolved. Do not allow to boil.
Remove from heat.

In a large Mixing Bowl with a Hand Mixer:
Egg Yolks
Remaining Sugar
Beat until well combined.
Slowly drizzle Warm Cream into the mixture and continue beating until well combined.

Pour this into a Double Boiler on Medium Heat.
Cook, whisking constantly until it thickens.
Remove from heat and set over a bowl of Ice to stop the cooking process.
Whisk constantly until cooled.
Fold in Tequila and Lime Zest.
Transfer to a bowl and cover with plastic wrap.
Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.

Serve drizzled over individual servings of Fresh Blackberries.

Peace in the Kitchen!
