Pumpkin Pie Brulee


Hello!  I am as sick as a dog, readers, and frankly there isn't a whole lot that sounds particularly appealing to eat except popsicles and ice cream.  However, this pumpkin pie brulee recipe might just be enough to push me back into the world of the living.  In the meantime, I'll be parked on the couch with Inga watching too much Criminal Minds in between naps.

For my pumpkin pie brulee, you will need:
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar, plus an extra 8 tablespoons for topping
  • 1 can Libby's pumpkin
  • 1 can evaporated milk (you can use whole, reduced fat, or skim)
  • 1 7/8 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice (ours is a family secret, do you have a special blend?)
Beat 3 eggs and add brown sugar, white sugar, pumpkin, evaporated milk, and spices.  Stir until well blended and pour into standard sized ramekins.  There should be just enough for 8 servings.
(The other two are in another pan)
Place the ramekins into rimmed baking pans, add water to the pans, and place them into a 350 degree oven.

Bake for 35-45 minutes until a knife comes out clean.

If you want, you can serve while the ramekins are still warm.  Otherwise, you can refrigerate overnight.  When you are ready to serve, top each dish with 1/2 to 1 tablespoon of white sugar.  Torch with a kitchen torch until the sugar begins to brown.  Use a gentle touch or you can quickly have a burnt top that isn't pretty or tasty.
If you look at the left hand corner, you can see an example of the not pretty, not tasty torching



  1. I think I can handle everything except the torching. That is a little above my ability! These look SO yummy!

    1. I think, though I haven't tried it myself, that you can pop them under the broiler instead of using a torch :)

  2. Aww hope you get well soon! This does look like it would help on the way to recovery =)
