Pumpkin Creme brulee

While we're talking about pumpkin recipes, here's a fabulously easy and very tasty one! This is my favorite pumpkin treat! You better try it Em!

3 C heavy cream

1 t pumpkin spice

1/2 t salt

3/4 C sugar

8 egg yolks

1 15 ounce can pumpkin

Stir cream, spice, salt and sugar in heavy pot. On medium heat, bring to simmer (bubbles around edge) Take off heat. Whisk together egg yolk and Pumpkin. Slowly pour in hot cream mixture until fully incorporated. Pour into 4 oz. ramekins. Place ramekins in a warm water bath and bake at 325 for 30-35 minutes or until set around the edges but slightly wiggly in the middle. Take out of oven, and water bath. Let sit 10 min. then cover each ramekin with plastic wrap and chill for 3-4 hours. When ready, sprinkle with sugar and torch to burn the sugar or put under broiler, watching carefully. Put a spoonful of whipped cream on top with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Mmm Mmmm Good!

I'm so glad you put this on here! It's the best. I can't wait to make it again, but I need to invest in a torch thingy first!
