Brandy Crème Brûlée Bars

Brandy Creme Brulee Bars

A miniature cousin to restaurant-popular Crème Brûlée, you'll find these bars every bit as creamy and wonderful.

  7. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until custard is set and knife inserted in center comes out clean.

  9. For bars, cut into 6 rows by 6 rows. Place bars on cookie sheet lined with waxed paper.
