Brandy Creme Brulee Dessert

1 cup Gold Medal all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
5 egg yolks
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/4 cups whipping (heavy) cream
1 tbsp plus 1 tsp brandy or 1 1/2 tsp brandy extract
1/3 cup sugar

1. Heat oven to 350 F. Mix flour, 1/2 cup sugar and the
butter with spoon. Press on bottom and 1/2 inch up sides
of ungreased square pan, 9X9X2 inches. Bake 20 minutes.

2. Reduce oven temperature to 300 F. Beat egg yolks and
1/4 cup sugar in small bowl with spoon until thick.
Gradually stir in whipping cream and brandy. Pour over
baked layer.

3. Bake 40 to 50 minutes or until custard is set and knife
inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely, about
1 hour. To serve, cut into 4 rows by 3 rows. Place on
dessert plates.

4. Heat 1/3 cup sugar in heavy 1-quart saucepan over medium
heat until sugar begins to melt. Stir until sugar is
completely dissolved and caramel colored. Cool slightly until

and stir until thin enough to drizzle.) Store dessert covered
in refrigerator.
