Cheesecake ( Flan ) Recipe


2 tb Sugar, divided
8 oz Cream cheese, softened
5 Egg yolks, beaten
13 oz Evaporated milk
1 cn Sweetened condensed milk
13 oz Can water measured in milk
1 ts Vanilla
1 pn Of salt

Place 10 tbs sugar in a heavy skillet. Stir over medium heat until
sugar dissolves into a light brown syrup. Pour immediately in flan
pan or shallow dish and let cool and harden. In mixing bowl, place
cream cheese; add beaten egg yolks. Stir in both milks, water,
vanilla, remaining sugar and salt. Blend with caramelized sugar and
set in a pan of hot water. Bake at 350 for 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 hr.

Note - Flan will look soft, but hardens in refrigerator. Be sure to
chill thoroughly; it is better if it can be refrigerated overnight.
When ready to serve, invert on a flat plate, and teh flan will come
out easily with the caramel sauce on top. Do not freeze.
