Crème Brûlée

(post, Culinate staff)

primary-image, l

Simple and rich, the silken custard and caramelized crisp topping of crème brûlée have made it a beloved and classic dessert. Most of the recipes in Crème Brûlée, by Lou Seibert Pappas, call for just four ingredients plus flavorings.

Naturally, the book focuses on classic, fruity, nutty, boozy, and chocolaty sweet treats. But there's also an entire chapter on savory baked custards, including puddings made with cheese, vegetables, rice, and fish.
