Creme Brulee

Recipe by Colbys Mom

I LOVE creme brulee. I have tried tons of recipes and had it at every restaurant that serves it, and I think this is the best creme brulee of all!

Perfect texture!! I used half and half instead of milk. I do prefer it a bit sweeter so I'll increase the sugar a bit. But it is super easy to make and everyone loved it. I did not find it too eggy and broiler was fine but I think I'll invest in a torch.
