Who here loves crème brulee? Who here loves pumpkin pie?
Who here has ever combined the two?
Luckily, I am in the mood to share this creamy, full-of-fall-flavor recipe with you, just in case you want to try it yourself.
I’m not sure why people shy away from making crème brulee at home, and opt to only enjoy it when they are out at fancy restaurants. It really isn’t difficult…just pudding, pretty much. If you can temper eggs, you can make it. And you CAN temper eggs. So see? You can make it.
Both Jon and myself really liked this combination of flavors, as it was a light and creamy version of pumpkin pie. Me, I am not a big fan of pumpkin pie, but I do love crème brulee. Jon is the opposite. So what we have here, folks, is a happy compromise. All the pumpkin pie flavor without the hassle, plus that nice sugary crunch on top that makes everyone happy.
Is there anything better than that crunch?
Give this recipe a shot and let me know what you think!
I’ve made crème brulee before, but until recently, I didn’t have this clever crème brulee baking set from Chicago Metallic. I adore it! The 4 ramekins fit snugly into a metal lift that sits securely in the water bath. When they are ready, you just lift them out via that lift, and voila – done. No mess, no fuss. Love it.
