Pumpkin Creme Brulee

pumpkin creme bruleeSimpler and muchmore elegant than a pumpkin pie. Make this a day or two in advance & torch it right before service. A delicious end to a fantastic meal!

Serves 8


1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
6 large egg yolks
1/3 cup plus 8 tbsp. sugar
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 tsp. cloves
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. pure vanilla
4 cups heavy cream

Preheat oven to 350º.

In a large bowl mix together the pumpkin puree, egg yolks, 1/3 cup sugar, maple syrup, cloves, nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon & vanilla until combined.

In a heavy saucepan, heat the cream just to the boiling point. Pour the cream into the pumpkin mixture stirring to combine.

Divide the mixture into 8 six ounce ramekins. Place the ramekins into a baking pan & add warm water, filing the the pan to halfway up the ramekin.

Bake 45-60 minutes until the custard is just set. Cool thoroughly then refrigerate a minimum of 4 hours.

Just before serving, preheat the broiler & sprinkle the top of each custard with 2 tsp. of sugar. Place under the broiler to caramelize (approx. 1-2 minutes). Or use a culinary torch to achieve the same result.
