Here's one I really found on the net... http://www.famousfrenchdesserts.com/creme-brulee-recipes.html Caramelized Vanilla Creme Brulee: Creme Brulà©e Caramà©lisà©e à  la Vanilleâ... Melts in your mouth with a little caramel crunch! Here is the traditional, authentic classicâ... Enjoy! Preparation Time: 5 - 10 minutes Cooking Time: 35 minutes Refrigeration Time: 30 minutes Ingredients (4 people): 1 Vanilla Bean, Seeds Scraped (or few drops of extract) 4 Egg Yolks 1/2 cup Granulated Sugar 7 oz. Milk 9 oz. Crà¨me Fraà®che (or heavy cream) 1/4 Additional Granulated Sugar (to caramelize with) How to Make It: Preheat Oven to 300°F 1. Beat eggs yolks with sugar. 2. Stir in vanilla seeds (or extract). 3. Add milk and stir until homogenous. 4. Add cream while stirring. 5. Pour batter into individual ramekins or flan dishes, and bake for 30 minutes. 6. Let cool off completely and then refrigerate for 30 minutes. 7. Powder tops with granulated sugar. Put back in oven (on broil, best if right under the grill) and let caramelize. 8. Serve warm or cold. Voilà ! Variations: You can add 1 tbsp. of Orange Liqueur or 1 tbsp. of Orange Flower Water (Fleur d'Orangier) if you want additional flavoring. One or the other, not both. If you want to experiment with other flavors, such as Rose Water or Almond extract, etc., I would say, let your creative juices flow! But, remember that this classic creme brulee recipe is best when the aroma remains subtle and delicate. So, only one extra idea at a time. Tips: Contrary to popular thought, you do not have to bake in a bain-marie (double-boiler). But if you want to, you can. If you don't have time to refrigerate, just powder tops with sugar after 30 minutes of baking, turn oven up to broil, and let caramelize right away.
