A little known fact about me is that my Dad’s side of the family is from Hungary, so I wanted to go back to my paternal roots today and make Hungarian Krémes. I started researching Hungarian desserts, because if I’m going to recreate something, I would prefer it to be as sweet as possible, and when I saw krémes, I knew I had to have one! They are made up of layers of pure deliciousness and incredible textures. You have pressed sheets of crisp, golden puff pastry with a hefty amount of decadent vanilla custard sandwiched in between. Dare I say, it’s like a thicker, whipped cream creme brûlée sandwich?? I think I DO dare say it! The whole thing is topped with a shower of powdered sugar, and they are more than worth the mess you’ll make eating one. I tried krémes on my trip to Croatia, which borders Hungary, and can confirm that these are pretty authentic! Until I go to Hungary, I can’t confirm 100%, but I do know they taste like Croatian krémes, so take that for what you will and make these ASAP!
