  1. Beat egg yolks in medium bowl with electric mixer on high speed, 5 minutes or until thick and light yellow. Gradually beat in sugar.
  2. Heat cream in medium saucepan over medium heat until just hot to the touch. A little at a time, so the eggs do not curdle, stir half of the cream into the egg yolk mixture. Then stir all the egg yolk and cream mixture into the remaining cream in the saucepan. Cook, stirring continuously, over low heat, 5 to 8 minutes, until mixture thickens; do not boil. Pour custard into 9 inch pie plate, cover and refrigerate 2 to 24 hours.
  3. Before serving, sprinkle with brown sugar and place under preheated oven broiler, or use a kitchen torch to melt sugar. Serve with berries.

Very disappointed. I wish I had read the reviews first as the custard did not set for us either and was used for a school project.

Not worth the effort – Custard did not ever set. Favor was great (added a touch of vanilla bean), and ease of preparation was great, but overall was very disappointed in this recipe.

I was really disappointed, the custard never set up over night. Ended up dumping it out after 18 hours of chill time. Ended up making another recipe that is baked and that worked out quite n...

We refrigerated it for over 24 hours but it never set. I had to throw the whole thing away.

My husband and I both enjoyed this recipe. I found it simple to make and delicious.

I had NO problem whatsoever w/ making the custard, it set up beautifully and tasted wonderful. The only change I made, I omitted the raspberries, and added a teaspoon of pure vanilla extract, i...

this was the worst version of creme brulee ever!

It tastes wonderful, but the broiler melted the chilled, molded creme into a liquid. Must use kitchen torch to avoid liquifying creme. I didn't broil the second one, and just served cold with ...
