Here's a rather unconventional dessert that will fit in with any holiday menu. The end result tastes very much like a smooth, custardy pumpkin pie.

7) Add HOT water to dish, being careful not to get any IN the ramekins otherwise the custard will fail. PROTIP: Put the pan on the oven rack and THEN add the hot water to eliminate spillage caused by transferring.

8) Bake about 35-40 minutes. Custard should still jiggle a little bit but not be liquidy. Think slightly loose jell-o. Let cool 15 minutes.

9) Cover TIGHTLY with plastic wrap. Do not let the plastic touch the surface of the custard. Cool in refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

10) Pour raw sugar onto creme brulee until covered, then pour off excess. Using kitchen torch, brown the sugar. If you lack a torch, throw the ramekin under a broiler for about 2 minutes.
