Like their popular Trillium cheese but filled with jalapeño peppers, Tulip Tree's Snapdragon is perfect for those who love a creamy-spicy combo.
- 1 package Tulip Tree Snapdragon cheese
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
Place cheese in the freezer for 20 minutes to ensure a slightly firm texture. After 20 minutes chilling, remove cheese from freezer, and with a hot, wet knife, shave off the top rind to expose the interior.
Sprinkle the sugar evenly over the top of the cheese. With a kitchen torch, brûlée the sugar until it is golden to medium brown. Hold the flame 2–3 inches over one section of the sugar until it begins to melt and just starts to brown. Then quickly move on to the next area. Be careful not to hold the flame over one part for too long, as it will burn the sugar. Serve immediately.
