Pumpkin Creme Brulee
1 1/4 c Whipping cream
1/2 Vanilla bean, split
5 lg Egg yolks
6 T Sugar
1 ts Grated nutmeg
1/2 c Solid pack pumpkin
2 T Orange liqueur
1/4 c Packed brown sugar
1/2 t Cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350F. Bring cream to boil in heavy saucepan. Remove from heat. Add vanilla
bean. Let stand 20 minutes; discard vanilla bean.
Whisk together yolks, 6 tablespoons sugar and nutmeg. Add pumpkin and orange liqueur and
mix until smooth. Whisk in cream mixture. Divide custard among 6 1/2 cup ramekins. Arrange
ramekins in heavy large baking pan. Add enough hot water to pan to come up halfway up the
sides of ramekins. Bake until sides are set but centers move slightly when shaken, about
20 minutes. Remove from water bath and cool.
Refrigerate one hour.
Preheat broiler. Sift brown sugar and cinnamon into small bowl. Sprinkle over custards.
Broil 8 inches from heat source until sugar begins to melt, watching carefully, about 30
seconds. Serve immediately.
