Ingredients for Basic Creme Brulee Recipe

2 c Whipping Cream
5 Egg Yolks
1/2 c Sugar
1 tb Vanilla Extract
1/2 c Light Brown Sugar — firmly

Basic Creme Brulee Preparation

Combine the first 4 ingredients, stirring with a wire whisk until sugar dissolves and mixture is smooth. Carefully pour the egg mixture evenly into 5 (5×1) round baking dishes or custard cups. Place in a roasting pan large enough to accomodate the dishes and add 1/2-inch of water to the roasting pan. This step creates a water bath to prevent curdling. Bake at 275 for 45 to 50 minutes or until almost set. Cool the custards in the water in the pan set on a wire rack. Remove from pan when cooled, cover and refrigerate overnight. When ready to serve, sprinkle about 1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar evenly over each custard; place each custard on a cookie sheet or jelly-roll pan. Broil 5 inches from heat. If using an electric oven, leave door partially open. Broil until the sugar melts. Let stand 5 minutes to allow sugar to harden. NOTES: Handle with care. These are extremely hot. Place custards as close to heat source as possible. To achieve a cracked effect, broil custards in a pan full of ice. Dixie Crystals sugar is reputedly the best for making this dessert. ***When finished cooking, the center will still be slightly liquid.
