Crème Brûlée is one of those special desserts that you can order at a restaurant. But did you know that Crème Brûlée is actually pretty easy to make? I make many types of Crème Brûlée, but Vanilla Crème Brûlée is a standard pretty much anywhere. I’ll make more in the future of some of the other varieties, but we’ll start with this. You will be making it more often now that you know how! And with Valentine’s Day coming up, make it for your sweetie and they’ll be super impressed!
Caramelizing the sugar on top of the Crème Brûlée at serving time is not only an exciting thing to do (everyone will be impressed with the show), but it’s the crack of the caramelized sugar on the top when you tap into it that is a signature to Crème Brûlée.
Here’s a tip about vanilla beans… don’t throw out the bean itself after you scrape out the seeds, dry them out for a bit then put them in a sealed container with sugar and use the “vanilla sugar” for all types of things… I like to sprinkle some on my pies, pastries, cookies, and spoon some in my coffee or tea, it’s delicious!
