Review This Recipe
Creamy Pumpkin Custard
I would definitely make this again. It was not a challenging recipe at all. I would put in the easy category. It also wasn't as rich and fattening as other creme brulees I have made before, but just as creamy and tasty! I used four smaller 3 ounce custard dishes and then four of the 6 ounce creme brulee dishes I had. I just took the smaller ones out of the oven sooner, about 50 minutes. The bigger 6 ounce custards only took about an hour, not quite as long as the recipe said.
