    In medium bowl, beat egg yolks, cornstarch and rum extract with wire whisk.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Pots de Crème is a creamy, rich French custard served in small pot-shaped cups. Its consistency is slightly soft and not as firm as a traditional pudding.
  • tip 2
    You can make this dessert up to 24 hours ahead. Just cover each dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
  • tip 3
    Top each serving with a couple of raspberries and fresh mint leaves.
