Raspberry Creme Brulee


Recipe is courtesy of the Firehouse Restaurant.



2 cups heavy cream
5 large yolks
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
4 teaspoons raspberry jam
fresh raspberries



Preheat oven to 350.Heat the cream in a saucepan just to the point of boiling. Remove from heat and set aside. In a bowl, beat together the yolks and sugar with a whisk.

Spoon 4 teaspoons of jam into the bottom of each ramekin. Add the white chocolate chips to the egg mixture and pour the hot cream into the bowl. Stir this mixture well and ladle it into the ramekins.

Place the cups in a baking pan and fill the pan with about 2 inches of hot water. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until set, then remove the cups and chill for 2 to 3 hours.

When you are ready to serve, sprinkle the top of the creme brulee with sugar and caramelize with a torch or place the ramekins on the top rack of the broiler and broil for 2 to 5 minutes, until the sugar has caramelized. Garnish with fresh raspberries and serve.

Yields 4 individual ramekins.
