Recipe by Chef John
"This is a great seasonal twist on the restaurant classic. The texture is actually closer to a pudding than a classic creme Brulee, and of course, the star of the dish is the crisp sugar top. This is great for your busy holiday schedule since you can make them the day before and then finish the sugar torching before you serve."

Amazing! But so is everything from this chef!!! Don't change a thing, just follow and enjoy with guests! I actually mixed this all in a blender and just poured it into the ramikins!
OMG this is a great recipe I first tried the pumpkin custard at Cracker Barrel it was served with ginger snap cookies and a caramel mousse it was awesome well this recipe is much much better I made the cookies and the mousse really guys this is better then anything you can get in a resturant just a few extra steps and WOW give it a try instead of brulee add ginger snap cookies smashed up on top and caramel mousse yum.
Excellent alternative to pumpkin pie - it was delicious - I'd never made a brulee before, so I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out great!
Excellent!!! I went a little lighter on the brulee layer as I wanted it to break a little easier for guests. A total hit at the party. DO TRY THIS ONE!!!
I will make this instead of pumpkin pie next Thanksgiving! Delish. I would HIGHLY recommend straining this mixture before filling the ramekins :)
Oh, wow! Super delicious! I love this recipe!! As Chef John says right off the bat, this does NOT have the same texture as a creme brulee, so no one should be disappointed or lower their rating because of this, but it does have its own wonderful, creamy texture and a flavor that is amazing. Thanks Chef John - another winner!!
Su yummy! Not the exact same texture as your typical creme brulee but still delicious. I plan on making it for Thanksgiving.
I knew it would be like this, but I missed the silky creamy custard of a true creme brulee. It was delicious, don't get me wrong, but the pumpkin texture just made it like a fancy crustless pie. Nothing to be done for that with this recipe, and my kids thought the torch was the coolest thing ever...
