Creamy, rich crème brûlée makes an outstanding pie filling.
This classic preparation of crème brûlée highlights the simple, subtle flavors of vanilla bean and burnt caramel. Be careful when applying the torch; the aim is to melt the sugar as much as possible before allowing it to burn and caramelize.
Classic, excellent crème brûlée takes only four ingredients and ten minutes of your time, and you can make it ahead. In fact, you should.
The little custards cooked perfectly evenly in the slow cooker and the texture and flavors were spot on, and the sugar sprinkled on top caramelized in just a few minutes under the heat of the broiler, no torch needed. Crème brûlée coming out of my kitchen, made with a slow cooker no less—it's really kind of incredible.
