Can I brûlée any custard? My husband wants creme brûlée for Thanksgiving. I have been looking at a maple pumpkin pot de creme. Can I brûlée the pot de creme?

    Yes- as long as you are doing torch per individual brulee, not the oven method, which may overwarm the more delicate mixture

      If you make the recipe with all heavy cream, like in classic creme brulee, I think it will stand up to the bitterness of the bruleed sugar better.
