The Last Dessert: Caramel Croissant Pudding

If I could choose my very last dessert in the world to eat, I think it may just be this. The buttery layers of pastry become silken and the rich caramel custard melts in your mouth. Paired with a good dollop of double cream (I mean, if we’re going all in, why not) and you’ve…
