Crème Brûlée Recipe

(Yield: 8 ea)

Ingredients:

32 oz cream

14 ea yolks

8 oz sugar

1 tsp vanilla

Preparation:

  1. Scald cream (200 degrees), blend together yolks, vanilla and sugar.
  2. Temper yolk mixture with hot cream.
  3. Skim off foam.
  4. Pour mixture into brûlée dishes. Set dishes on a flat sheet pan and set in a 350 degree oven.
  5. Pour hot tap water into pan to create a deep bath.
  6. Bake 15-20 minutes or until set. Chill.
  7. When the custard is cool and set, pour enough granulated sugar on each one that there is a small amount of excess that slides around the top.
  8. Using a torch, carefully scald the sugar so it caramelizes but does not burn. Let the sugar top sit for at least a minute before serving.
