  • 3/4 cup whole milk or low-fat vanilla Greek yogurt  (you can also use plain for a lower sugar version)
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree not pumpkin pie filling
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar packed
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt

For serving

  • 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt


  • Preheat oven to 325°F. 
  • Whisk together yogurt, pumpkin, ¼ cup dark brown sugar, egg yolks, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla and salt in medium mixing bowl. Divide mixture among two 3.5 oz ramekins. 
  • Place ramekins in a roasting pan. Add hot water to the pan so it hits halfway up the ramekins. Bake for approximately 30-35 minutes, until custard starts to set. Remove from oven and let cool.
  • Cover ramekins tightly with plastic wrap and chill at least 5 hours.
  • When ready to serve, preheat the broiler or get kitchen torch. Sprinkle each ramekin with 1 tablespoon brown sugar and put on a baking sheet. Broil for 1-2 minutes, keeping a close eye on the brulees so that they don't burn. Alternatively, turn on kitchen torch and place close to the brulees, melting the sugar, burning just slightly. Refrigerate 10 minutes just until sugar hardens.
  • Serve topped with pumpkin seeds and sprinkled with salt.


Brulees can be made a day ahead of time up until caramelizing the sugar.
