Vacherin with chestnuts

This chestnut cream vacherin is the perfect cake to seek an apology with.

  • 4 eggs
  • 20 cl Fresh liquid cream

  3. Fill in the pastry rings in the shape that suits you (or verrines) and put in the freezer for 12 hours.
  4. When ready to serve, decorate with meringue chips and an icy chestnut.
