Hi Blahnik Baker readers!! I’m Kayle and I’m the blogger behind “The Cooking Actress”-a little piece of the internet where I rant randomness and share recipes for tasty tasty food. I am SO excited to be guest posting for Zainab while she takes some time off to cuddle her brand new little babykins. She deserves this time, amiright? And I of course did not hesitate to step in and help out—Zainab stepped in and guest posted for me when I moved from NYC to Ohio AND when I was gearing up for my wedding (during which time she was preggers and trying to prepare for her own leave, mind you).
Not only has Zainab been incredibly helpful and generous over the course of our friendship-but she has been that way literally since the inception of our friendship! Almost as soon as we discovered each others blogs she noticed that I was whining about how much I wanted a copy of “The Cookie Dough Lover’s Cookbook”. And do you know what she did? SHE SENT ME ONE. Zainab bought me, essentially a stranger, a cookbook and shipped it to me. That is how amazing of a person she is. So, I thought it was only fitting that for my guest post today, I make one of the recipes from that very cookbook! And omigosh it is a good one!
So crème brûlée is essentially just vanilla pudding with caramelized sugar on top, yeah? Pretty good, would just be ok if it weren’t for the aforementioned caramelized sugar. But these are special. These are great. Because there’s a layer of cookie dough under the custard. And somehow that cookie dough, even after baking, retains it’s dough-like quality. And it is insanely delicious. Rich yet light and creamy with crunchy bites of the caramelized sugar. Heaven. I intended to break in my new kitchen torch with these but, due to lack of reading the box…I realized I did not have any butane gas for the torch. So I used the broiler. Which worked out just fine-if a teeny less fun than using a torch. Either way, you end up with a fantastic dessert that is sure to impress-whether you’re entertaining or just sitting and watching Netflix in your pj’s. Or maybe taking a moment to indulge while your baby naps….hmmm Z? 🙂 Recipe from “The Cookie Dough Lover's Cookbook”, by Lindsay Landis
