Butter Pecan Creme Brulee (Low Carb)

eggs

When my sister-in-law blessed me with two dozen farm-fresh country eggs yesterday,

I started digging through my old low carb recipes.  I had a breakfast custard recipe in mind, but ran across this creme brulee recipe.  I would love to find out the recipe creator, so I can give them thanks and proper credit. *Updated – I found out the recipe’s creator is named Roni.  Thanks that for info, Linda Sue.

(see how I store/display my farm fresh eggs! )

I found this particular recipe several years ago on one of my favorite low carb sites.  Some of the absolute best cooks congregate on the recipe board at Low Carb Friends!

I used my Pampered Chef Prep Cups (with storage lids) to bake the creme brulees.  Not fancy, but servicable.

custard

I sprinkled a little nutmeg on the creme brulee before baking, like the breakfast custard recipe calls for.  Not sure why, since I planned on topping them with praline pecans.

Don’t you just love the sound of praline pecans?!

Butter-Pecan Creme Brulee

2 cups heavy whipping cream
4 egg yolks
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Dash of salt
1/2 cup granulated Splenda (or 1 scoop KAL Stevia, erythritol or sweetener of your choice)

In a medium sauce pan, heat cream over medium heat, just until bubbles start to form.
Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
In a bowl, whisk together egg yolks, vanilla, salt and sweetener.
Gradually whisk in cream. Using a mesh strainer, strain mixture.
Divide into four custard cups (you can use some like these.)
Bake in a water bath for 30-40 minutes at 350ºF. 
Custards should be set, but still jiggly.  Chill for one hour.
Make butter-pecan topping and divide between between cups.
Refrigerate for four more hours or overnight.

Butter-Pecan Topping:
1 tablespoon butter
1/8 cup pecans – finely chopped
1 teaspoon Splenda or your favorite sweetener

Melt butter.
Stir in pecans and Splenda.
Heat just until nuts begin to color, being careful not to burn.

This is definitely a keeper! The butter pecan topping is delcious!  I think I will double or triple the topping recipe next time, so it will completely cover the top of each creme brulee dish.
