Wish I could give this one more stars than 5. It is awesome. I have about 10 varieties of creme brulee that I make but this one is my husband's all time favorite. It is always like a touch of fall from the crunchy brulee to the cinnamony apples at the bottom. YUM! (I got same recipe from Food Network)
