These Creme Brulee Cookies are fantastically easy and so yummy!
These cookies are a bit of a departure for me…
See, I don’t love Creme Brulee.
I am not really a fan of anything custardy or pudding-ish.
It’s the texture, man.
But after having a version of these cookies in NY last week I thought.. maybe I haven’t given creme brulee it’s fair due.
And what I’ve found is that custard in teaspoon sized amounts is good.
The perfect amount, really.
And it’s especially ok, when it’s sitting on a sugar cookie with a crackly sugar crust.
Creme Brulee Cookies.
These are totally easy…
First make your simple “Creme Brulee”. I actually made a quick version using instant pudding mix. Feel free to make a from scratch version as well…OR I have seen these Instant Creme Brulee packages in the supermarket as well! They would work great!
First just make your simple sugar cookie dough, and roll it into balls…
As soon as they are baked make a small indentation in the top of the cookie…Spoon about a teaspoon dollop of the prepared creme brulee into the top of the cookie.
Then sprinkle it with your sugar. Use Sugar in the Raw or light brown sugar.
Then pop them back under the broiler for about 30 seconds until the sugar gets slightly burnt. You could also use a kitchen torch for this too! I tried it both ways!Just know that if you broil your cookies, the crunchy sugar will dissolve if left out for any length of time… if you really want the crunchy effect, torch your sugar right before serving.
Either way they still taste great!
