When a small ramekin of crème brûlée can't hit the spot, opt for an entire pie.

Créme Brûlée Pie

Ingredients

  • 1 frozen pie crust

  • 1 1/3 cups heavy cream

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

  • 2/3 cup sugar, divided

  • 6 egg yolks

  • Pinch of salt

  • 2 tablespoons sugar for finishing

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F.

  2. Thaw pie crust, then pierce with a fork. Foil and add pie weights and bake for 15 minutes. Allow to cool.

  3. In a small saucepan, bring the cream, vanilla, and 1/3 cup of sugar to a simmer over medium heat. Let cool to room temperature.

  4. In a medium bowl, whisk the egg yolks and remaining 1/3 cup sugar together.

  5. Pour the cream into the yolks in a steady stream, whisking constantly to combine.

  6. Bake at 325 F until the custard is set around the edges, but still noticeably jiggly in the center, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool to room temperature.

  7. When the pie is cool, sprinkle 2 tablespoons sugar in an even layer over the pie. Brûlée the sugar in the broiler until evenly melted and caramelized. Let sit at least 5 minutes before serving.
