Western.Chefs's picture
Ingredients
  Heavy cream 3 Cup (48 tbs)
  Superfine sugar 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Vanilla 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Egg yolks 6 , lightly beaten
  Light brown sugar 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Not Firmly Packed)
Directions

Cook and stir cream, sugar, vanilla, and yolks in the top of a double boiler over simmering water 7-10 minutes until mixture coats a wooden spoon.
Pour into an un-greased shallow 1 1/2-quart casserole and stir 1-2 minutes.
Place wax paper directly on surface of creme, cool to room temperature, then chill 1-2 hours.
Preheat broiler.
Sprinkle a 1/4" layer of brown sugar evenly over creme, set casserole in a shallow bed of crushed ice, and broil 6"-8" from heat about 3 minutes until sugar melts and bubbles (watch so it doesn't burn).
Remove from ice, chill 10-15 minutes, then serve, including some of the crackly topping with each portion.
