Pumpkin Creme Brulee Recipe!

 
Serves 5
 
Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup whole milk
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
2 pinches nutmeg
1 pinch ginger
1 pinch ground cloves
4 egg yolks
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup canned pumpkin puree
1/3 cup coarse sugar or 1/3 cup raw sugar

Directions:

1 Preheat the oven to 300°F.
 
2 In a medium saucepan, heat the cream, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves over medium heat, stirring occasionally, just until it comes to a boil. Immediately turn off the heat and set aside to infuse at least 15 minutes.
 
3 In a large bowl, whisk the egg yolks with the granulated sugar. Whisking constantly, gradually pour in the hot cream mixture. Whisk in the pumpkin puree.
 
4 Strain mixture into a large glass measuring cup (the measuring cup makes it easier to pour into the ramekins without mess).
 
5 Bake in the center of the oven until almost set but still a bit soft in the center, 30 to 40 minutes. The custard should "shimmy" a bit when you shake the pan; it will firm up more as it cools.(Center Temp will be between 161F-168F).
 
6 Remove from the water bath and let cool 15 minutes. Tightly cover each ramekin with plastic wrap, making sure the plastic does not touch the surface of the custard.
 
7 Refrigerate at least 2 hours, and up to 24 hours. Uncover the chilled custards. Pour as much coarse sugar as will fit onto the top of 1 of the custards. Pour off the remaining sugar onto the next custard. Repeat until all the custards are coated. Discard any remaining sugar.
 
8 Fire up your kitchen torch and melt/brown the sugar. (You can do this under a broiler, but I feel it heats up the brulee too much. You want the top crisp but the brulee cold and that result is difficult with a broiler. If you love brulees like I do--buy a torch!).
 
9 Let cool 1 minute before serving.
