Preheat oven to 350.
4 Cups heavy cream
2 tsp. vanilla
8 egg yolks
3/4 cup sugar
Heat the cream, vanilla, and salt
Combine the egg yolks and sugar
Mix hot cream and yolk mixture one cup at a time so as not to cook the egg mixture.
Pour into individual baking dishes.
Bake in wet bath (fill a couple of 9x13 glass pans with water to coat the bottowm of the dish.) at 350 for 1 hour 15 minutes.
Stand until cool. Chill 3 hours(can do overnight)
When ready to serve: Sprinkle sugar over the top of the brulee to cover.
I use a butane torch to burn the sugar on top, the boys think I am totally cool using fire in such a way. I have seen them at Ross Dress For Less Stores. If anyone else has seen one, let us all know. I use William Sonoma Creme Brulee Finely Ground Sugar. You can use regular sugar on top and burn with a torch or use brown sugar and broil it in the oven until sugar melts.
Try it out and let us know what you think!
