pumpkin pie brulee

Everybody's doing it!  And I think with good reason - this is a tasty food fad.  Honestly, I have never enjoyed pumpkin pie until this pie.  What changed?  The crisp caramelized sugar top makes things so much more interesting and in this case it was paired with a chocolate crust.   If I haven't sold you yet, doing a brulee means you get to play with fire!  I used a recipe from Bon Appetit though next time I will make a less fussy chocolate crust.

  1. chocolate graham cracker pie crusts (yields 2 which is what I find the Bon Appetit filling recipe yields in my pie tins)

    16 graham crackers, finely ground
    10 T. unsalted butter, melted
    1/3 c. sugar
    1/3 c. cacao powder
    1/8 t. salt

    Bake the crust for 10 minutes at 350 F. Then add the Bon Appetit pumpkin pie filling and bake for 60 minutes.
