2 cups heavy cream

¼ cup sugar
¼ cup brown sugar

Pre heat oven to 300˚

While the vanilla bean steeps, whisk together the yolks, corn starch and the sugar.
Using a wooden or hi-heat plastic spoon, temper the yolks with the warm cream then combine everything together and pour into a 2” deep ½ hotel pan. Pace in a larger pan with hot water and place in the oven.
Cover with a sheet pan and cook let bake for 45 minutes.
Remove and chill for at least 6 hours.
Spread 2-3 tablespoons of the crème brulee mixture evenly over the bottom half of the waffle, then liberally sprinkle over the crème brulee mixture with sugar and then carefully caramelize with a kitchen butane (or standard propane) torch.
