- 9 large egg yolks
- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 3 tablespoons Bourbon
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 1⁄2 cups whipping cream
- 6 tablespoons golden brown sugar
- 1⁄2 cup pecans, coarsely chopped and toasted
- Preheat oven to 350°F
- Place six 3/4-cup custard cups in large roasting pan.
- Whisk egg yolks, sugar, bourbon and vanilla extract in large bowl to blend. Bring whipping cream to boil in heavy medium saucepan. Gradually whisk hot whipping cream into egg yolk mixture. Pour custard into souffl
dishes, dividing equally.
- Pour enough hot water into roasting pan to come halfway up sides of souffl
dishes. Bake custards until just set in center, about 30 minutes.
- Remove from water and cool completely. Cover and refrigerate at least 6 hours. (Custards can be prepared up to 2 days ahead. Keep covered and refrigerated.).
- Preheat broiler. Arrange custard dishes on baking sheet. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon golden brown sugar evenly over each. Broil until sugar melts and turns dark brown, rotating baking sheet for even browning and watching closely, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle creme brulees with chopped toasted pecans, dividing equally.
