Berry Brulee'

This isn't actually creme brulee', but a faux brulee' that you do under the broiler. It is really good, quick and easy to make-perfect for a summer dessert. If you don't have ramekins, you can put it in a square 8x8 or 9x9 pan or similar casserole dish- even an ovenproof bowl would work- and serve it from there. You're gonna like this one.
About 3 cups fresh berries, any kind (mixed strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries or any one of those)
1 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar

Divide the berries between 4 ramekins or put in the bottom of a square baking pan or casserole.
Mix the cream cheese, sour cream vanilla and white sugar with an electric hand mixer until creamy. Pour over berries. Sprinkle with about 1/2 cup brown sugar. Broil until bubbly and almost burned. Cool. This will create a hard top like on creme brulee. Serve. You can double this and put in a 9x13 pan if you need to serve more people. Yummy yummy yummy! I think I might try it with our fresh peaches next.

I did try it with the peaches, but the berries were much better.
