80g Pistachio Crème Pat

Line moulds with butter with a pastry brush. Use vertical strokes to encourage the rise.
Place moulds in fridge so butter doesn’t melt.
Whip whites to a froth then add the sugar, get the crème pat hot over a double boiler.
Whip the whites to very stiff peaks then split mixture in half
Beat half the mixture into the crème pat, then fold the second half in more gently
Pipe into moulds and clean the top, bake at 180oC for 5-6 minutes
