creme brulee adventure

So I decided to give creme brulee a try the other day upon a request... I had never made it before, but it was pretty delicious! I'm posting the recipe if you want to give it a try!

p.s. I did the speed version...not cooling it as long in between steps, but it still seemed to produce the same result!

6 egg yolks
6 tablespoons white sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla 
2 1/2 cups heavy cream
2 tablespoons brown sugar

1.  Pre-heat oven 300'
2. beat eggs, sugar,vanilla in mixing bowl until thick and creamy
3. pour cream into saucepan, stir over low heat, until almost boiling, remove from heat, stir into egg mixture, beat until combined
4. pour mixture into top of a double boiler. stir over simmering water about 3 min(it will thicken)
5. bake 30 to room temperature then refrigerate 1 hr or overnight.
6. preheat oven to broil
7.combine remaining 2 tbs of white sugar and brown sugar. sift evenly over custard. Place under broil until sugar melts.  seriously will burn quickly!
