Peach Melba Tulips

The day before, make the vanilla ice cream:

– In a skillet, boil the milk, liquid cream and vanilla beans opened along the entire length and scraped off with the tip of a knife.

– In a cul-de-soup, mix the egg and yolks, make them launder with the caster sugar.

– Combine the two mixtures and bake at 82 °C. Leave to cool and then mature overnight in the refrigerator.

– The same day, go to the ice-cream maker and book in the freezer until it’s time to serve.

For the tulips:

– Preheat the oven to 170 °C (th. 5/6).

– In a cul-de-poule, mix the softened butter with the caster sugar using a whisk. Stir in the icing sugar, almond powder and sifted flour. Gradually add the egg whites and liquid vanilla, then 3/4 of the slivered almonds previously dried in the oven and lightly browned.

– Using a tablespoon, place small heaps of about 20 to 25 g on a flexible baking sheet (or a lightly buttered baking tray), then spread out in a round shape 12 cm in diameter.

– Bake for about 8 minutes.

– At the exit of the oven, form the tulips with a glass, taking care to mark the bottoms to stabilize them. Book dry.

– Place a tulip on each plate. Top with vanilla ice cream and peaches in syrup, then sprinkle with remaining slivered almonds.
