Which is it?

Various places on the Internet give recipes for what is often called Confectioners' Custard. It's a cooked mix of milk, cream, eggs and flours and used in pastries.

But the spelling isn't consistent across the Net and now I don't know if it's Crème Pâtissière or Crème Pâtissèrie.

I've always said Crème Pâtissèrie but I'm prepared to be wrong.

Any good cooks out there know ?

Well FWIW I've always called it Crème Pâtissèrie too, but on the other hand Pâtissière means pastry cook or confectioner, so this would appear to be more accurate.

I think it's the same thing. It's also I own as pastry cream.
I'm know expert though, and may be wrong.

Why does the auto correct do that! Also known as, and no expert!😠
