Help! Baking time conversion for Creme brulee recipe

I just found this recipe from Nigella- http://www.nigella.com/recipes/view/creme-brulee-193 - that I think I'll make instead but add in the lemon peel from the Epicurious recipe and strain it out of the custard before pouring into the pan. Its a no-bake recipe and she makes it in a bigger dish. Yay!

Oh, also I found this from the What's Cooking America in case someone else is looking for a baked brulee made in one dish- http://whatscookingamerica.net/CremeB...

Thanks so much for your help, hotoynoodle and cutipie721!

Help! Baking time conversion for Creme brulee recipe

Could I use a cupcake pan instead of a muffin tin? With cupcake liners? Or I guess I could get muffin tins instead. Hrm...

Help! Baking time conversion for Creme brulee recipe

Would lowering the temperature help to cook it more evenly, do you think? I don't have ramekins.

Why brine poultry and pork but not beef?

Isolda, Please help! I'm following the same recipe but my butcher gave me two 2.5lb beef tenderloin pieces, instead of one 5lb piece. I put one teaspoon of kosher salt on each (according to the recipe) and I put it in the fridge last night around 10:30. At this point, the salt has been absorbed into the meat because there are white salt "stains" on the surface but there are maybe two drops of blood on the tray, no water. Can I add more salt? Is this how yours was too? Should I add more kosher salt and cover the beef entirely? Someone said because my beef is pretty lean, that's why the brining isn't working as it should. Panicking! I'm hosting a huge dinner party tomorrow and this is one of the mains! Argggh!

Help! Baking time conversion for Creme brulee recipe

Hello!
I am making this creme brulee recipe tomorrow and I was wondering what the conversion would be if I wanted to make it in a 8" circular dish instead of individual ramekins? http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/foo...

Thank you!
