How to make petit fours
- In a double boiler, combine your eggs, egg yolks, sugar, and lemon extract. Mix all ingredients for at least 15 minutes.
- The mixture will become too hot and will cause the eggs to cook unevenly. Once the mixture has thickened, heat it to 170F. Don’t worry if you don’t have a candy thermometer. When the liquid thickens, it is ready to be boiled.
- To get rid of any lumps, run your custard through the sieve. Next, whisk in the butter one cube at a time until the butter is incorporated into the custard. Next, add in your lemon zest. To prevent a layer of custard from forming, add some plastic wrap to the bowl. Allow chilling in the refrigerator for approximately one hour.
