      i found this recipe in Bon Appetit many years ago. Creme brulee is one of my DH favorite desserts and I litterally went through a phase where that was all I made for guests. This is one fine dessert and I would definately recommend this recipe. Thanks Kitten for posting this saved me a bunch of work!!!
