I am in a pumpkin mood!  My house is slowly starting to look like fall.  I hit the craft store for some burlap and some pumpkins.  I am digging out my fall decorations and bringing them in and I have projects lined up for the kids this week.  So I found this recipe for Pumpkin Custard and thought to myself ….oh…how good this would be with a crème brulee topping.   So voila!  Pumpkin Custard Brulee!

This recipe is easy, but it does take time to bake, time to cool, and very little time to eat.  So, be prepared that this recipe does not offer immediate gratification, but it is totally worth the wait!
