Creamy Caramel Flan

Loved this recipe! I made three for a big party and it was great. Some tips I used were to let the eggs and cream cheese come to room temp before mixing, be sure to beat well after each egg is added for the lightest texture and don't overcook sugar in the first step. If you do make more than one at a time like I did, do not try to do the carmelized sugar in one large batch, it will not work well, I had brittle sugar by the time it had all melted, then I redid it in individual batches. But I used the brittle for decoration.

Ingredients

    3/4 cup sugar
    1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
    5 large eggs
    1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
    1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

    In a heavy saucepan, cook and stir sugar over medium-low heat until melted and golden, about 15 minutes. Quickly pour into an ungreased 2-qt. round baking or souffle dish, tilting to coat the bottom; let stand for 10 minutes.
    In a bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until thoroughly combined. Add remaining ingredients; mix well. Pour over caramelized sugar.
    Place the dish in a larger baking pan. Pour boiling water into larger pan to a depth of 1 in. Bake at 350° for 50-60 minutes or until center is just set (mixture will jiggle).
    Remove dish from a larger pan to a wire rack; cool for 1 hour. Refrigerate overnight.
    To unmold, run a knife around edges and invert onto a large rimmed serving platter. Cut into wedges or spoon onto dessert plates; spoon sauce over each serving. Yield: 8-10 servings.
