    • Hi Cheryl, Then you will love this recipe. It is just the easiest thing to make, so go for it and enjoy. 🙂

    I guess I wasn’t early enough to leave the first comment. 🙂
    These are so wonderful! Is there any way to carmelize the sugar with out the use of a torch?

    • Hi Elizabeth, Keep trying, I know you can do it… LOL. It can be done by placing them very close to an already heated boiler but it’s tricky. A small kitchen torch works much better because it’s easier to control.

  • Never had creme brulee…guess I just don’t cut the custard

    • Hi Mike, You are just too cute. Give these a try, I think they will become a favorite of yours. 🙂

  • OOooh! I love these! I really like mini-desserts. You can have a few without being too piggy, and if someone doesn’t want a lot, there’s not a lot of waste. And if you’ve got a variety, people can have a taste of a lot of different things.

    • Hi Donna, I so agree with you. This is just one of many mini desserts that I make. Others will be showcased sometime next year so stay tuned. 🙂

  • Your picture makes me wish food could be magically transported through time and space like it is on Star Trek! I Definitely must pin this one and find a bottle of red wine to go with it.

    • Hi Jeri, What a fantastic compliment. 🙂 If I could I would send you some pronto. :-), You will love these when you give them a try. 🙂

  • Pat Ruppel

    Yum – looks good Susan. Guess you can’t put the torch to these to carmelize.

    • Hi Pat, These are so delicious that they fly out of the kitchen, many times before I have a chance to brûlée them… LOL.

  • Love creme brulee and it was my husband’s favorite dessert. I will give these a try. But I’ve never used a kitchen torch and not even sure what it is or where you buy one. Leave it to me to burn the house down! Thanks again for a great recipe!

    • Hi Jeannette, I too love a good creme brûlée or any type of egg custard. You can get a small kitchen torch at any kitchen or household goods store such as Bed Bath & Beyond or William Sonoma. Have fun with this. 🙂

  • Maribel Reyes

    I know you say to be careful to not burn the sugar, reminded me of me one time trying this out with my mother and I burned the sugar and the crust. 🙂

    • Hi Maribel. LOL… boy can I relate. It took a few trys before I got it right. I found that the little kitchen torch worked the best and was much easier to control. Have fun with this recipe. 🙂

  • Stephanie Ruby Feldman

    Sounds divine!!!

  • I’ve never made creme brulee because it seems so daunting, especially browning the sugar. Can these be frozen as served later if they last that long? 🙂

    • Hi Krisha, I’ve never tried to freeze them. They never stay around long enough to find out… LOL. These are so easy to make that Ii takes the daunt out of daunting… 🙂

  • I could do this. I’m scared to try creme brulee on my own but I could actually make these work 😉

    • Hi Jamie, That was exactly what I I thought. It really is so simple and I just love the taste. I’m not kidding when I say they will disappear soon after they come out of oven and before I can brûlée them… LOL

  • Lisa J. Jackson

    This is really going to show how much I don’t know about baking, but I absolutely love egg custard (my grandmother used to make it in little dessert cups, and I have always loved custard pie). Until this moment, I did not know creme brulee was egg custard. No idea at all. Okay, so I will absolutely have to try this! thank you!

    • Hi Lisa, This is one of my absolute favorite desserts. They are super easy and oh so good. Have fun with it. 🙂

    • Hi Lisa, I would say most people are not always aware that Creme Brûlée is egg custard based, so don’t feel bad. Give these a try, you will be so happy you did. 🙂

    Susan, I just found your recipe! Can these be made a day ahead before serving?

    • Hi Debi and welcome, They certainly can. The only thing you need to remember is to warm them up a bit. Enjoy. 🙂

  • Ceclie

    These look really good!!!!,
    But I was wondering, what is the difference from using whole milk and heavy cream? (because a lot of recipes for creme brulee require heavy cream).
    and…. what if you didn’t have a torch…..could u sprinkle the sugar and put them in the oven for a few more minutes?

    • Hi Cecil, That is a good question, Because these are small, use the whole egg and baked in the way they are, whole milk is a better option. You can do that with the sugar but make sure the broiler is fully heated and then put the mini pies very close to the broiler for very few minutes. 🙂

    Hi Susan, rather than turn to the shelf of cookbooks, I turned to you for a new dessert idea. These sound delicious. Want you to know the photo is giving a 404 error.

    Shared this post on Facebook as I have one friend who is particularly wild about Creme brûlée.
