    Andy Wold's Note:

    Recipe by J.J. Stith chef at "Aqua", Bellagio Hotel, Las Vegas NV. Pretty tarts are made from brioche filled with a mixture of fresh berries. The tarts are served with homemade Tahitian Vanilla Ice Cream -- Tahitian vanilla is very aromatic -- but may be served with excellent-quality purchased ice cream to simplify the recipe.

      Split the vanilla beans and scrape the seeds into the milk mixture, then drop in the pods.
    3. 3
      Bring to a boil, then immediately remove from heat and set aside for 2 minutes to steep.

      Cook over medium heat, stirring gently but constantly, until the mixture thickens and coats the back of a spoon.
    7. 7
      Remove from heat and strain through a fine-meshed sieve into a bowl set in a larger bowl of ice.
    8. 8
      Let chill, stirring occasionally as the mixture cools.

    19. 19

    22. 22
      Line 2 sheet pans with parchment paper.

      Divide the cold dough into 10 portions, roll into balls, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
