Eggnog? Did someone say Eggnog? Yes, another delicious dessert and this time a creme brulee. This is a more time consuming recipe but worth it!

If you love Creme Brulee and Nog well..need I say more? This is one creamy, rich and nogalicious dessert as the flavors of rum, brandy and nutmeg are tasteful bites of heaven.

The total time for this dessert is 4 1/2 hours so it would be better to make it ahead of time.

Recipe from Pillsbury Christmas Cookbook.

6Before serving, place ramekins in 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Top each with 1 Tablespoon brown sugar. Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat for 1 to 2 minutes or until sugar is melted. (Watch closely.) Store in refrigerator.

Tip:
To sugar-coat the cooled custards, hold a strainer over each ramekin and press the brown sugar through. The even layer of sugar on the custards will melt evenly under the broiler.
