- Heat the cream, milk, and half of the sugar in a pot until they are simmering.
- Whisk the yolks and remaining half of the sugar together in a bowl.
- Slowly temper the milk into the egg yolks and sugar, whisking constantly.
- Once combined, strain the mixture into a container.
- Add the Pumpkin Spice Compound and stir to thoroughly combine.
- Place ramekins into a large shallow dish and pour the brûlée into the ramekins.
- Fill the dish with water half way up the ramekins, and cover with a sheet pan or foil.
- Bake at 300 °F degrees for 20-30 minutes, depending on the size of the ramekins and amount poured into them.
- Once set, remove and let cool in the water on a rack for 15 minutes.
- Remove the ramekins from the water and let cool completely before chilling for a day or at least 2 hours.
- Sprinkle raw sugar over the top of the chilled brûlée and shake the ramekin a bit to evenly distribute the sugar, before burning.
- After burning the sugared top, warm a spoon and place a quenelle of the Pomegranate Cream onto one edge of the brûlée, or pipe a layer of decorative cream onto the top of the burned sugar.
- Garnish with pomegranate arils.
- If you are not making the brûlée immediately, chill mixture in an ice bath before storing and chilling.
- Mix will last 5 days.
