  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease an 8 x 8-inch baking pan with nonstick baking spray. Unroll pie crust and line the bottom of the pan with it. Use a sharp knife to gently remove the edges, so the pie only lines the bottom of the pan.
  • 2
    In a stand mixer, combine the eggs, sugar and butter, creaming until light and fluffy. Add vanilla, flour and milk. Mix until combined and pour into crust.
  • 3
    Bake for 40 minutes. Carefully open the oven and sprinkle a layer of cinnamon sugar over the top of the bars. Return to oven and bake 15-20 minutes more, until the center is set.

    Allow to cool completely before slicing into bars. Enjoy!

Expert Tips

  • Mexican vanilla will add a slight cinnamon flavor to the filling, but if you can’t find it at your store, you can substitute regular vanilla extract.
  • I once went on a diet where I ate only salads and crème brûlée. I wouldn’t recommend this as a viable eating approach. But I tell you that to prove that crème brûlée is my bae. And so, when I tell you that these bars are JUST AS DELICIOUS as a ramekin of that creamy, caramel-topped custard, you can rest assured: they are. Making these dessert bars is awesomely easy. Line a baking sheet with pie crust, top with a simple Mexican vanilla-spiked custard batter. Bake, then top with cinnamon sugar and allow to caramelize for a few minutes before pulling from the oven. The end result is a splendidly sweet brûlée bar. Perfect for pairing with horchata…or RumChata™, if you so please. Whether you try these bars because you love crème brûlée, or have mad cravings for churros, you’re about to be delighted by this dessert.
