How to Make a Low Carb Pumpkin Pie Crème Brûlée

To make the base of the crème brûlée, combine heavy cream, pumpkin puree (100% pumpkin, not pie filler!), and pumpkin pie spice in a saucepan. Cook over a low heat for 5 minutes. At this point you might also like to add a few drops of orange food dye – because if there's one thing that everyone associates with pumpkins, it's the color orange! But of course this is entirely up to you.Low Carb Pumpkin Pie Crème Brûlée - a fantastic dessert for the fall!

Meanwhile, add two egg yolks and some low carb sweetener (eg Lakanto – get 20% off if you use coupon code SAFTC!) to a small bowl, and whisk them together.Low Carb Pumpkin Pie Crème Brûlée - a fantastic dessert for the fall!

Temper the eggs by taking a spoonful of the cream mixture, and quickly mixing it into the egg mixture, Then add the tempered egg mixture to the cream mixture, and stir well to combine.

Divide the mixture between two ramekins (I used these white square ones!). Place the ramekins on a small baking pan.Low Carb Pumpkin Pie Crème Brûlée - a fantastic dessert for the fall!

Fill up the pan with hot water so that it reaches about half way up the sides of the ramekins. Bake in a preheated oven for 30-35 minutes until the center is set, but still a little wobbly. Remove the ramekins from the water and leave to cool.

Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours or overnight. Just before you're ready to serve them, sprinkle each ramekin with a little erythritol (it's the best for melting!). Place under a hot broiler (or use a cook's blow torch!) until the sweetener has melted. Leave to cool for 5 minutes to let it harden, then serve!

So, are the net carbs lower, due to the sugar alcohols?

No, most people who follow a low carb diet do not count sugar alcohols. So if you DO count them, then the net carb would be higher. Hope that helps!
