CREME BRULEE INSTRUCTIONS

COOKING INSTRUCTIONS
• Transfer your crème brûlée into a shallow dish and give it a quick whisk.
* The mixture will have thickened overnight.
• With a paring knife, make a few slits on both sides of the croissant so that it will soak up more liquid.
• Place your croissants into the mixture and allow it to soak on each side for a few minutes.
* I double soaked it, soaking each side twice.
• As your croissant is soaking, prepare your pan. Place some butter into your skillet and let it melt over med-low heat.
• Place your soaked croissant into your prepared pan and let it cook for 3-4 minutes on each side.
* Optional: dust with powdered sugar and garnish with fresh fruit.

** ADDIECAKES' NOTES **
• The crème brûlée can be made the night before and refrigerated.
• Do not soak more croissants than you can cook at one time. If you let your croissants sit in your mixture too long, it starts to soften and will fall apart.
