Crème Brûlée Day!

July 27th is National Crème Brûlée Day!

I don't say this often, but this is one of my favorite desserts. Who doesn't like to crack that caramel layer on top?

Crème Brûlée
"Burnt Cream"

Crème Brûlée is traditionally a vanilla custard, but sometimes flavored with a fruit zest, chocolate, coffee, or other fruit. It's topped with burnt sugar, which caramelizes and give it that hard caramel crust. The caramel can be formed by sprinkling sugar on top of the custard, then placing in the broiler or using a kitchen torch to caramelize the sugar, this is the fun part.
