Vanilla Mousse

Prepare a custard. Heat the milk and the vanilla. Mix the caster sugar with the yolks, then pour the mixture into the boiling milk. Cook the mixture at 83°C, then let it cool in the refrigerator to 35°C. Mount the pouring cream (600 g.) with a whisk. Mix the cream (60 g.) with gelatine for desserts. Incorporate the mixture of cream and gelatine into the custard. Work everything with the whipped cream and then pour the mousse obtained into the shortcrust pastry cases up to the lip. Place the shortcrust pastry cases in the freezer at -30°C

Attention: Do not mix the cream and the gelatine for desserts too early because otherwise the mixture will not incorporate well into the custard.
