Story behind the recipe:

Ever seen a dairy free creme brulee before? Bet you haven't, but even if you have, it's a pretty rare occurrence. Well this recipe is here to fix that and it's even got a flavor twist to it.

If you can have apples, by all means go for the classic flavor of caramel apples. If you can't or you want something different, then go for the Asian Pears. You could even try other pears, though it's more likely to go better with Asian Pears since they're less sweet and also still give you that apple crisp. However, if you're the kind of person who loves sugar on top of your sugar, then other pears might be better for you anyways.

Share with someone who loves creme brulee! Maybe you can even enjoy it together. Enjoy!
