Creme Brulee

Creme Brulee, the dessert for our anniversary dinner. Recipe as follows :

Ingredients :

- 2.5 cups heavy whipping cream (original recipe calls for fresh whipping cream)
- 4 medium egg yolks
- 4 tbsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- brown sugar to caramelize

1) Heat the cream gently but not to boil
2) Beat together the egg yolks, sugar and vanilla extract. Pour the warm cream into egg mixture in different batches. Beat until it is mixed thoroughly.
3) Pour into ramekins and put them in a pan. Fill the pan with warm water halfway up the ramekins. Bake in 300 degree oven for about 1 hour until set.
4) Chill in fridge.
5) Sprinkle brown sugar over the top and heat it under hot broiler.

This dessert can freeze very well. I usually make a batch and store the leftover in freezer, then take it out whenever we want to have it. It is very convenient.
