Sweet, lemony goodness in a smooth texture. This recipe is not for the faint of heart, but it does deliver extraordinary flavor and is sure to be a hit. In addition to a saucepan, you will need a sieve or colander, a whisk, ramekins, and a flame source to burn the sugar. Light up the sugar in front of your guests to add excitement to the occasion. Serve this dessert during holidays to heighten the festivities (although you can make it throughout the year).

I could eat the crust off of the crème brulee all day long. The Spanish version is even more amazing. Don’t try to skimp and use vanilla flavoring here, the real vanilla beans do something spectacular to the flavor of this dish. I love this and make it year round. It is especially popular around the fall harvest in our home. It’s not the easiest dessert to prepare, but it is worth every ounce of hard work just to get one bite.
