Directions

  1. Whisk together eggs and sugar in a small bowl; set aside.
  2. Heat cream in a saucepan over medium-low heat until bubbles form around edge (will look like foam). Remove from heat; gradually whisk about 1/2 cup half and half into egg mixture. Whisk egg and half and half mixture into remaining cream in saucepan. Return saucepan to stovetop. Stir constantly, over medium-low heat, until mixture thickens slightly, about 7 to 9 minutes. (Don't overcook or custard may become curdled-looking.) Remove from heat; stir in vanilla.
  3. Pour or ladle custard into four 7 or 8-oz (220 or ) ramekins or custard cups, or six 4-oz ramekins or custard cups. Let cool, then cover and store in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight. Custard will thicken a little more as it cools.
  4. Just before serving, sprinkle 1 tsp brown sugar over top of each custard. Use a mini butane torch to melt and caramelize the sugar. Or place the custards briefly under the broiler, watching closely, until tops are lightly browned.

Although the flavor is nice and this recipe certainly is easy to make, it just never set up the way a custard should, consistency was too soft. I did use FF half-and-half, so maybe that had something to do with it?? I browned the topping under the broiler, and it became even softer, but in spite of the texture, it did taste good.
