I'm a lover of Brulees and the Pumpkin Creme Brulee was easy to make and very tasteful. It's not only a treat for Fall time, but it would be also suitable for the Christmas season.

Super easy to make. If you mix some pumkin spice into the sugar before broiling it, it adds a hint of flavor that makes it sooo much better!

I liked this recipe because it was easier than stated. I especially liked the thought that I could put it in the oven to carmelize the top instead of using a cooking torch.

Creamy Pumpkin Custard

by J. Jnani , Vancouver, WA on Feb. 2007

I would definitely make this again. It was not a challenging recipe at all. I would put in the easy category. It also wasn't as rich and fattening as other creme brulees I have made before, but just as creamy and tasty! I used four smaller 3 ounce custard dishes and then four of the 6 ounce creme brulee dishes I had. I just took the smaller ones out of the oven sooner, about 50 minutes. The bigger 6 ounce custards only took about an hour, not quite as long as the recipe said.

Wonderful!
