      Scorched Oranges! That sounds like a medical condition. Tasty and made for ZWT#8.

      Add me to the list of fans of this simple and delicious dessert! I made it with peach schnapps... mmmmm....think fuzzy navel.... I started making this with a real orange, but upon realizing that I possess neither the skill nor patience to de-pith an orange, I opened a can of mandarin oranges. And that worked great! Plus the little mandarins are perfectly spoon-sized. I used creme fraiche in place of the sour cream and was quite pleased with the mixture. I made single servings in ramekins and sprinkled brown sugar on top. Sooooo good! I would advise not over-pouring the liquor, it doesn't cook off and it will turn the bottom of your ramekin into a creamy, boozy soup. Although depending on the crowd, that might not be a bad thing... ;-)

      Elegant....Sophisticated.....Delectable......Yummy in yer tummy. :) What an absolute treat this was. I made two individual servings using 2 oranges. Should have added some zest to the top too, but that will have to wait till next time. I didn't have any Grand Marnier, so used Malibu Rum. WOW! Tropical Brulee Deluxe. I made the mistake of piling the cream topping high, so when it started to melt.....all over the edges. Next time I'll make sure the ingredients don't go above the rim. ;) K9, this was a fantastic treat mid afternoon. Wonder if you could do a orange/pineapple mix.Honoured to make this as a "Thank You" for voting for Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia in the 2010 Kraft Hockeyville Competition.
