Pumpkin Creme Brûlée

Pumpkin Creme Brulee in Time for Thanksgiving

This week on the blog and on YouTube I am making pumpkin creme brulee. I had never had creme brulee until I moved to New York City and I went on a date with my now husband and he suggested I get the creme brulee because he thought I would like it.  Super creamy desserts were never something I was attracted to, I always liked cookies and cupcakes and things like that.  So I decided to give it a try and I fell in love. I proclaimed at that moment that creme brulee was now my favorite dessert of all time. When I later became gluten-free I was so happy to know that I could still have creme brulee.  Funny enough, I never actually made it at home until very recently. There’s not that much hands on preparation needed but there is a lot of waiting. What makes it so great though, is if you have guests coming over you can make it beforehand and then just caramelize the sugar when you’re ready to serve.
