Ingredients

  • Pecan and Butter Cracker Crust, recipe follows

  • 3 1/2

    cups heavy cream, divided

  • 1

    teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1

    teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

  • 1/2

    teaspoon powdered ginger

  • 1

    vanilla bean, seeds scraped and pod reserved

  • 8

    egg yolks

  • 1

    cup sugar

  • 1/2

    cup whole milk

  • 2

    cups canned pumpkin puree

  • Hot water

  • 1/4

    cup turbinado sugar

  • Butter Cracker and Pecan Crust:

  • 32

    butter crackers (recommended: Ritz crackers)

  • 1/2

    cup pecans

  • 5

    tablespoons unsalted butter melted, plus more if needed

  • 2 to 3

    tablespoons dark brown sugar

Directions

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Divide the crust into 8 (6-ounce) custard cups. Put them into a 9 by 13-inch baking dish or roasting pan and blind bake in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove and set aside to cool. In a medium sauce pot, over medium-high heat, add 2 cups of the cream, the spices, the vanilla seeds and the vanilla bean pod. Bring to a boil and remove from heat. In a medium bowl, whisk the yolks with the sugar until the mixture is pale yellow and the sugar is dissolved. Add the remaining 1 1/2 cups of cream and the 1/2 cup of milk to the cream and spice mixture. Slowly incorporate the yolk and sugar mixture, then strain through a medium-size sieve. Whisk in the pumpkin puree. Divide the pumpkin mixture evenly into the custard cups lined with the crust.* Add the hot water into the baking dish or roasting pan to create a hot bath and put the pan into the oven. Bake until the custard is starting to set, yet still a little wiggly in the middle, about 35 to 45 minutes. Remove the brulee from the oven and let cool to room temperature. Cover and refrigerate overnight or at least 6 hours. Lightly sprinkle each custard with the turbinado sugar. Heat the sugar with a butane torch until caramelized. To get a thick caramelized sugar crust, repeat this, with just a light sprinkling each time. Allow to cool and serve. *Guy's Tip: if you happen to have any leftover creme brulee mixture, pour it into a baking dish and put it into another roasting pan. Add hot water about halfway up the sides of the dish and bake until custard is starting to set, yet still a little wiggly in the middle, about 35 to 45 minutes. Remove and cool to room temperature. Cover and refrigerate overnight or at least 6 hours. Refer to recipe for caramelizing sugar on top after it has cooled completely. Butter Cracker and Pecan Crust: In the bowl of a food processor fitted with the metal blade, pulse the crackers and pecans until finely ground, about 6 to 10 (3-second) pulses. Add the melted butter and brown sugar and pulse to combine. Press into the bottom of a springform pan, baking dish, or 8 (6-ounce) ramekins. Recipe courtesy of Guy Fieri
