Creamy Flan

Directions

  1. To caramelize sugar, in a large skillet cook the 2/3 cup sugar over medium-high heat until sugar begins to melt, shaking skillet occasionally. Do not stir. When sugar starts to melt, reduce heat to low and cook about 5 minutes or until all of the sugar is melted, stirring with a wooden spoon as needed. Pour caramelized sugar into bottom of a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate; tilt pie plate to coat bottom. Let stand for 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 325 degrees F. In a large bowl beat cream cheese with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add the 1/2 cup sugar; beat until combined. Beat in sweetened condensed milk until combined. Beat in eggs, half-and-half, and vanilla until smooth.
  3. Place pie plate in a roasting pan on an oven rack. Pour egg mixture into pie plate. Carefully pour boiling water into roasting pan around pie plate to depth of 1 inch. Bake about 70 minutes or until top is lightly browned and a knife inserted near center comes out clean.
  4. Carefully remove pie plate from water. Cool in pie plate on a wire rack. Cover and chill for 8 to 48 hours.
  5. To unmold, use a knife to loosen edge of flan. Invert a serving plate with a rim over pie plate; turn over serving plate and pie plate together. Remove pie plate. Spoon any caramelized sugar remaining in pie plate onto flan. If desired, garnish with Sauteed Plantain Slices and nuts.
