Grapefruit Brulee

We love hot fruit desserts during the cold months, so we slimmed down a Banana Creme Brulee and ended up with this decadent Grapefruit Brulee[ that has 200 less calories and a quarter of the fat.]

Ingredients
  • 2 large red grapefruits, at room temperature
  • 8 teaspoons dark rum
  • 2 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into bits
  • 2 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/8 teaspoon fine salt
Directions

Position a rack in the upper third of the oven. Preheat the broiler to high.

Halve each grapefruit, then loosen the segments by cutting along the membranes with a paring or grapefruit knife. Drizzle 2 teaspoons of rum evenly over each half.

In a small bowl, combine the butter, sugar, flour, allspice, and salt. Using your fingertips, pinch the ingredients together until the mixture forms soft crumbs. Sprinkle the crumbs evenly over the cut grapefruits.

Place grapefruits on a broiler pan, and broil until the crumbs are lightly browned, bubbling, and shiny, about 7 minutes. Serve immediately or cooled slightly.

Cook's Note: Serve these for dessert at either dinner or brunch.
