Raspberry crème brulee

Lynnda Cloutier


You can use 2 teaspoons vanilla extract for the vanilla bean. If you use the vanilla extract, heat only the whipping cream just until warm. Don't cook until simmering or let stand for 15 minutes. Add vanilla extract to warm cream.From an old magazine

How to Make Raspberry crème brulee


  • 1Preheat oven to 325°. In a small heavy pan mix cream and vanilla bean. Cook over medium low heat about 15 minutes or until mixture just starts to simmer, stirring frequently but do not boil. Remove from heat. Cover and let stand for 15 minutes to infuse cream with vanilla flavor. Remove vanilla bean; discard or reserve for another use.
