Butterscotch Creme Brulee
5 tablespoons butter
1 cup light brown sugar
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 3/4 cups butterscotch sauce (see note)
1/2 cup butterscotch flavored schnapps
4 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 1/3 cups egg yolks
Light brown sugar (for top of brulee)
Granulated sugar (for top of brulee)
1. Combine egg yolks and heavy cream. Add butterscotch sauce and schnapps, stir well. Let set for at least 5 minutes.
Skim the foam from the top. Fill custard cups with creme brulee mix.
2. Bake at 300 F in water bath covering 1/3 of the custard cups. Cover with a baking sheet. Baking time will vary depending on depth of cups. When creme brulees are done, they will jiggle like set gelatin. Minimum baking time of 30 minutes. Refrigerate.
3. Mix equal parts brown sugar and white sugar together and set aside.
4. To serve, cover top of each creme brulee with a thin layer of brown and white sugar. Carmelize under the broiler until sugar just melts and begins to darken.
Recipe note: To make butterscotch sauce, in heavy-bottom sauce pot, place 5 tablespoons butter first followed by 1 cup brown sugar and 2 tablespoons light corn syrup. Bring to a boil. Add 1/2 cup heavy cream, return to a boil, stir. Cool and reserve for creme brulee mixture.
