Creme Brulee Recipe
  • Preheat oven to 350° F degrees.
  • In a mixing bowl, beat egg yolks until slightly thickened. Gradually stir in sugar and salt.
  • Heat the cream in a saucepan over medium heat. Remove from heat before cream comes to a boil. Slowly stir into egg mixture. Add vanilla.
  • Divide the mixture into 4 ramekins and place them in a baking pan.  Fill the pan with water about half way up the ramekins to make a water bath.  Bake for 45-60 minutes until firm.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool.  Sprinkle the top with sugar and carmelize with a kitchen torch.  Garnish with raspberries or strawberries.
Tip: Brown sugar may be substituted for the granulated sugar, but you may want to increase the amount to 1 tablespoon per serving.
