Bostini Cream Pie

This is my first post for Daring Bakers and Mary of Alpineberry chose an unbelievablydelicious 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.Mary’s recipe for Bostini Cream Pie.

    The two spoons are brilliant! I oculd only eat 3 bites before I passed it over to my husband. Definitely a dessert to be shared.

    I didn’t know that Kurtis Baguley was at the Grand America – I live about 30 minutes from Salt Lake!! I’ve not made it there to eat yet (except room service), but did stay at the hotel after I got married a couple of years ago! Great job on your first challenge!
