Variations: Espresso Creme Brulee; Ginger Creme Brulee
This recipe is one of the best I have ever had. Crème Brulee means "burnt cream" and contains heavy cream and numerous egg yolks, so it is richer than its relatives. Crème brulee derives its name from the thin, crispy, caramelized layer of sugar that sits atop its creamy base. This recipe is adapted from Sirio Maccioni's New York Le Cirque's Restaurant.
