This is a simple recipe for a rich and tasty creme brulee.
Preheat oven to 300 F. In a medium saucepan, combine the heavy cream and vanilla and heat on medium heat until almost boiling.
In a separate heat safe bowl, whisk the egg yolks and sugar together. Set aside.
When the cream is heated, slowly drizzle it into the egg mixture and blend with a whisk. Then pour all contents back into the saucepan. Heat over medium high heat until the mixture begins to thicken. Stir constantly scraping the sides of the saucepan as you go.
When the sauce thickens, place your preferred size of individual serving size oven safe ramekins in a baking dish and fill the baking dish so that the water comes half way up the ramekins. Pour the mixture from the saucepan into the ramekins. Cover with tinfoil and bake for 40 minutes.
This dish is so easy to make and, in comparison to its traditional cousin, can be made as low fat as you desire (using fat free Cool Whip and sugar free pudding mix). The molasses cookies add a spiciness not often found in a traditional pie crust. If you don’t like the flavor of molasses, you could always substitute ginger snaps, but the soft molasses cookies are a delicious addition.
