Add the hot, strained heavy cream vanilla mixture to the whisked egg yolks slowly, continuously whisking quickly to make sure the egg doesn't cook. Continue until the mixture is fully combined.


Step 7

Spoon a few tablespoons of white sugar on top of the baked custard. With a hand torch, brûlée (burn) the top of the custard until the sugar darkens. Let sit for 5 minutes for it to cool and form a nice caramelized crust before eating.


Step 8

Step 9

Or don't add raspberries and mint and keep it traditional! Look at the little black segments- that's the fresh vanilla bean. It makes a huge difference in texture and taste in comparison to vanilla extract. Note the hardened sugar coat!
