Crème brulee

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
½ cup Light brown sugar
1½ cup Half and half
1 \N Vanilla bean; split lengthwise
2 tablespoons Sugar
2 \N Whole eggs
1 \N Yolk

How to Prepare: Preheat the oven to 300 F. Spread the brown sugar on a baking sheet and place in the oven for 10 minutes to dry. Remove from the oven and press through a sift. Heat the half-and-half and vanilla bean in a saucepan until it just begins to boil. Set aside.

Whisk the sugar, whole eggs, and yolks, in a large bowl until just combined (do not overmix). Slowly temper the hot half-and-half into the egg mixture.

Return the mixture to the saucepan and stir over low heat until it coats the back of the wooden spoon.

Divide the custard among 4-6 shallow Creme Brulee molds. Bake in a water bath for 35-40 minutes, until the sides are set and the center jiggles or a skewer comes out clean.

Chill at least 8 hours or overnight.

Preheat the broiler. Sprinkle the brown sugar over the custards completely covering the top. Place each dish under the broiler until caramelized.

Serves 4
