Eggnog Creme Brulee

I have been making creme brulee for my wife for quite some time and one day she asked me, 'Honey, is it possible to make creme brulee out of eggnog? I think that would be so yummy.' So, I bought some eggnog and set about finding out if it is possible, and it is. You can also take the same recipe and pour it into a prepared pie crust for an eggnog custard pie. It's a lot less work and hassle than individual ramekins.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place 4 ramekins or custard cups into a shallow baking dish, and fill the dish with water to half-way up the sides of the ramekins.
  2. Pour the eggnog into a pan over medium heat. Cook and stir occasionally until the mixture simmers, about 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, place the egg yolks and sugar into a mixing bowl; beat until light colored and frothy. Stir in the mascarpone until well blended and smooth. Whisk 1/4 cup of the heated eggnog mixture into the eggs. Gradually whisk the remaining eggnog into the eggs. Pour the mixture through a fine sieve to remove any egg strands. If desired, stir in the nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla. Pour into the prepared ramekins, dividing evenly.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until custard has set, 30 to 45 minutes. Centers should wiggle slightly when shaken, but not be soupy.
  5. Remove from oven and cool 30 minutes; refrigerate at least 3 hours before serving.

I thought it was very good. I used rum instead of the vanilla. It will be a regular holdiay dessert.

SO GOOD! The marscapone makes it amazing. I also used a lot of rum instead of vanilla and it was so delicious. If I make regular creme brulee again I will absolutely use the marscapone.

This was all right. I LOVE creme brulee, so I guess I shouldn't stray :o) I also like eggnog, and wanted a "festive" dessert for my Christmas Eve dinner. The directions were good, I had no trouble, it set up nicely, the consistancy was good- I don't know, it just was kind of..... not creme brulee. Maybe it was TOO eggnog-y or something. If you ADORE eggnog, this may perfect for you! If I were to make it again I think I'd add some southern comfort or brandy or something, and replace some of the eggnog with cream.
