Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 8

5 Whole eggs
4 Egg yolks
1/2 Cup(s) Granulated Sugar
3 Cup(s) Half-and-half
1 Cup(s) Heavy cream
1 2-inch piece of vanilla bean
1/4 Cup(s) Firmly packed light brown
In a bowl whisk together the whole eggs, the yolks, and the granulated
sugar, add the half-and-half and the cream, scalded with the vanilla
bean, in a slow stream, stirring, and strain the mixture through a
fine sieve into a 1-1/2 quart flameproof shallow baking dish. Set the
dish in an ovenproof skillet or baking pan( the smaller the skillet or
pan the better ),add enough hot water to the skillet to reach halfway
up the sides of the dish, and bake the custard in the middle of a
preheated 325 F oven for 40 minutes, or until a tester inserted close
to the edge comes out clean. Remove the dish from the skillet, let the
custard cool completely in the dish on a rack at room temperature, and
chill it, covered, for at least 3 hours. The custard may be made 1 day
in advance and kept covered and chilled. Sift the brown sugar over the
custard, covering it completely, put it under a preheated broiler
about 6 inches from the heat, turning dish occassionally, for 2 to 3
minutes, or until the sugar is melted and caramelized, and chill the
creme brulee for 10 minutes before serving it. Serves 8
