(reserving the vanilla bean pod). In a saucepan add 3 cups of heavy cream and vanilla bean pod. Bring to a gentle simmer.  Preheat oven to 325° F Remove vanilla pod from heavy cream. Slowly add a bit of the warm cream to the pumpkin mixture to temper the eggs and stir. Add the remaining warmed cream slowly continuing to stir and combine. Pour pumpkin custard mixture into 4 large ramekins or 8 small ramekins, filling about ¾ from the top of the ramekin. Place filled ramekins into a baking dish that is deep enough to add boiling water halfway up the side of the ramekin. Carefully put water filled baking dish into a preheated 325°F oven. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove baked crème brûlée from water bath and place on a cooling rack and refrigerate for 2 hours allowing the custard to set.
