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?

  1. 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.

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