Bostini Cream Pie
This is my first post for Daring Bakers and Mary of Alpineberry chose an unbelievably
delicious and decadent dessert that one's dinner guests will long remember and marvel at your skills in the kitchen.
Bostini Cream Pie, the high class cousin of Boston cream pie is a light and airy orange chiffon cake served with a smooth and creamy custard sauce and topped with a chocolate glaze. The orange juice and zest marry well with the intense vanilla custard and has a special affinity with the chocolate.
Created by Kurtis Baguley, now executive chef at the Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City, Utah, Bostini Cream Pie won the San Francisco Chronicle's top recipe for 1996. Still served at Scala's Bistro in San Francisco, Bostini Cream pie is a grand dessert for special occasions.
Thanks to Ivonne of Cream Puffs in Venice and Lis of La Mia Cucina for creating Daring Bakers.
