    Yummo! Who doesn’t love creme brulee:

    A classic.

    An early post (plus it’s very short…to say everyone a little time during this holiday week.) Happy holidays to all my fellow Doristas! May your table be filled with amazing food and loving friends and family.

    Happy Holidays to All! Can’t wait to read all your posts, and hear about your holiday dinners. Would have been great fun to have a post about our holiday meals – everyone is so creative, and I just love reading the posts.

    Wishing you all a safe, happy holiday, filled with love, laughter and cheer!

    Despite my subconscious’ best efforts to ruin this, it turned out great. Apparently you can’t make a bad creme brulee.

    Posting this early with Nana’s results. We both adore Creme Brulee as do our families (though I have been known to order it for dinner…..) and this was a true delight to enjoy at home. Happy holidays to all the Doristas !!!

    Sending you all best wishes for happy and healthy holiday celebrations, from my corner of the world to yours. Let the feasting begin!

    I was not a happy camper with this recipe :( I see many of the TWD folks also had some issues with these not setting. I was so frustrated.

    Happy holidays everyone – it’s been fun baking and cooking with you this year!

    I’m all baked out. I must have made too many dozens of cookies in the last two days and while I have everything to make a creme brûlée for DH and myself, I couldn’t bring myself to make it. :-(

    I did make yet another batch of the wonderful Speculoos and used Dorie’s sugar cookie recipe from the baking book and it was fantastic. My co-workers will be one happy bunch today.

    I wish the best Christmas/rest of Hannukah to all of you! Thank you for all the stories and tips shared this year!

      I’ve enjoyed getting to know you through FFwD this year.
      Have a great holiday!

      Happiest of holidays to you from Nana and I – we enjoyed reading your posts as well as your comments this year and look forward to trading more in 2012 !

    I ate far too much in New Orleans to come home and make a creme brulee! But I am looking forward to catching up with your posts over the long weekend ahead … happy holidays, Doristas!

    Creme brulee didn’t quite make the menus this week, but I’ve enjoyed reading everyone custard adventures so far!

    Happy Holidays to Everyone!

  12. jora December 23, 2011 at 10:06 AM #

    Happy Holidays to everyone! I actually made (and enjoyed!) the creme brulee a couple of weeks ago, but just got around to posting about it.

  13. mike509 December 23, 2011 at 10:17 AM #

    Joyous holidays to all! Note: pumpkin-spiced eggnog Creme Brûlées are quite tasty! Loved the crackly, sugary topping on these!

  14. lizzydo December 23, 2011 at 10:36 AM #

    Merry Christmas!!! A winner (but I did bake mine 60+ minutes in shallow ramekins).

  15. ComeUndone December 23, 2011 at 2:44 PM #

    When 60 min turned into 6 hours in the oven, this creme brulee became the most accidentally perfect dessert I made in a long time.

    Happy Holidays! I didn’t make this week’s recipe, but wanted to wish everyone a lovely holiday and I look forward to cooking with all of you next year. I’ve looked back over all the recipes we’ve tried this year, and have enjoyed most every one – hard to chose a favorite, but I’ll have to say mine was the Torte de Chevre – so unique and adaptable to sweet or savory presentations. Here’s an Italian Christmas torte/cake/cookie called Fregolotta I just made, and loved!

  17. KarenP December 23, 2011 at 4:58 PM #

    I loved it! Wishing all of you happy holidays with friends and family!

    Merry Christmas and happy holidays to every one of you…I love my FFWD & all of you wonderful, fabulous cooks that participate. Let us celebrate & love one another.

  19. betsyp December 23, 2011 at 9:27 PM #

    Delicious! (Better late than never) :)

    Happy Holidays everyone!

  20. Elaine December 24, 2011 at 1:26 AM #

    I’m late on this one, but I am so glad I made this. What a wonderful dessert. Happy Holidays!

  21. Robin December 24, 2011 at 4:01 AM #

    I have totally fallen behind the last couple of weeks. I look forward to cooking with all of you again in January when life calms back down. I hope you all have a fantastic holiday and a very happy new year with lots of great cooking!

    • tricia December 26, 2011 at 11:30 AM #

      I can so relate in falling behind – if it were not for Nana getting all the recipes completed on time I probably would have taken the month off ! It has been a wonderful experience for both of us to participate in FFWD and we are both looking forward to sharing posts and comments with you in 2012. Happy New Year !

  22. acookingmizer December 24, 2011 at 10:49 PM #

    Merry Christmas to all!
    We loved this one, although we will need to work on setting the custard a bit better next time!

  23. onewetfoot December 25, 2011 at 1:31 AM #

    Have a wonderful holiday! I’m looking forward to seeing all your versions.

  24. KY December 25, 2011 at 1:37 AM #

    Here’s mine :)

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    Ha, need a redo! Happy Holidays, everyone!

  26. tammycirceo December 27, 2011 at 8:58 PM #

    I made this twice last week and only just now getting it posted! Merry Christmas to you all!!

  27. Candy December 30, 2011 at 12:38 PM #

    Super late, not so great….

  28. ApronThyme December 31, 2011 at 5:50 PM #

    Another Super Super Late posting but now I’m caught up. Was ready to dislike this but now I’m a convert! Thank you Dorie!!
