    Default Pumpkin Crme Brle

    Pumpkin Crme Brle


    Recipe Description
    Makes 14 servings. 6 net grams of carbohydrate per
    serving.
    Preparation Steps:
    I made these for Thanksgiving one year. (I used xylitol)
    They were a huge hit!
    Level of Difficulty:
    Easy
    Time Needed:Ingredients:
    Ingredients:
    1 quart heavy cream
    2 vanilla beans
    (split)
    1 cup Splenda
    1 cup Splenda
    20 egg yolks
    (beaten)
    1/2 teaspoon
    cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon
    allspice
    1/4 teaspoon
    powdered ginger
    1 pint pumpkin puree
    (1 med can pumpkin)
    as needed Brown
    Sugar Twin
    AND Diabetisweet
    (for tops)
    Serves:
    14
    Directions:
    (This recipe can be cut in half to make 6-8
    servings.)

    Combine the heavy cream, vanilla and 1 cup
    Splenda, bring to a boil. Combine the egg yolks and
    1/3 cup of Splenda. Add 1/3 of the hot liquid to the
    egg mixture, stir constantly. Add the egg yolk
    mixture to the remaining hot cream, stir constantly.
    Stir in the cinnamon, allspice, and ginger. Fold in the
    pumpkin puree.

    Preheat oven to 325F.

    Fill buttered ramekins 7/8 full, place in a water bath.
    [Place ramekins in a deep roasting pan and fill pan
    with enough water to reach halfway up sides of
    ramekins.] Bake in a 325F oven until just barely
    set. Cool 30 minutes, then chill overnight.

    Cover the surface of each custard with 1/8-inch of
    Brown Sugar Twin mixed with Diabetisweet. Set
    ramekins in a deep roasting pan, surround with ice.*

    Caramelize sweeteners under the broiler or with a
    torch.

    *Note: Setting ramekins in ice keeps the custard
    from becoming reheated when caramelizing the top.

    Oh, remember that if you use xylitol it is poison to dogs!

    I think I'll do half regular and add sugar and half with splenda. Pumpkin is one of my fav foods ever. I'm also bringing a Snickers salad

    Polly the Snickers salad is a no no for me but everyone seems to love it

    1 8oz cool whip
    1 package vanilla pudding
    1.5 c milk
    4-5 chopped snickers bars
    6 chopped granny smith apples
    4 bananas sliced

    mix pudding and milk together, add to cool whip and fold into the fruit and snickers mixture

    That sounds very interesting! Snickers and apples together, who would have thought it?

    Yeow....nodmicks.........that snickers salad sounds like it would be great! May have to do that.

    Will have to half the brulee..........that 20 egg yolk thing is just too much. It sounds similar to a recipe I make called burnt cream. Mine has a broiled sugar glaze on top. Soooo good......but sooooo fattening!!
