    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.

      Very, very good recipe for Creme Brulee.........I've made it twice now, and have decreased the cream and milk down to one cup to make a more solid version.... But it definitely deserves 5 stars.....I too have ordered many creme brulee's at various restaurants and this is the closest to the best I've had....

      Six eggs would have been sufficient. Other than that it is a basic recipe. Tastes good, just basic.
