Crème Brûlée Spoons
makes 16 spoons
  • 3 cups heavy cream
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 5 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the cream, yolks and sugar. Pour in a saucepan and heat on a medium flame. Slowly stir the whole time with a wooden spoon. The custard is ready when it coats the back of the spoon (about 5 minutes) or reaches 175 degrees F. Add vanilla extract.
  2. Pour into ceramic spoons and refrigerate until set (about 30 minutes).
  3. To brûlé, sprinkle a tsp of sugar over each spoon and use a kitchen torch to caramelize it.
