Crème Brulee Tarte
For those of us who aren’t talented pastry chefs in French patisseries, or those of us who don’t own blowtorches, crème brûlée is a difficult dessert to make. The custard needs to set perfectly before baking – only wobbling ever so slightly. The eggs should be just the right temperature. And never use whole eggs – just the yolks.
Trader Joe’s Crème Brûlée Tarte lets you skip all these pesky, nitpicky steps and get straight to the dessert-eating. A rich, velvety vanilla custard, made with cream, sugar, egg yolks, and bourbon vanilla flavor, creates the tried-and-true Crème Brûlée goodness. Normally, this dessert is served in a round, wide ramekin, but we’ve upped the ante and placed the custard in a buttery, flaky crust. Included in the box is a packet of sugar to create that iconic crackling caramelized top layer. A quick few minutes under your oven’s broiler and it's ready to break into with a spoon (can you hear it?). Of course, if you do by chance have a kitchen blowtorch, feel free to safely use this instead. Each 14.5 ounce Crème Brûlée Tarte is $5.99 – a sweet value for an even sweeter French delight. You’ll find it in our freezer cases this holiday season.
