    Juenessa's Note:

    Although flan is usually served chilled, this take on the classic dessert gets its delicate texture from cream cheese, and is best when eaten warm or at room temperature. Recipe courtesy of Gourmet magazine, September 2007.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Make caramel:.
    2. 2
      Heat sugar and water in a small heavy saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring until sugar is dissolved.
    3. 3
      Cook, without stirring, brushing down sugar crystals from side of pan using a pastry brush dipped in cold water and swirling pan occasionally so caramel browns evenly, until dark amber.
    4. 4
      Immediately pour into ramekins and swirl so caramel coats bottom of each and partway up side, then put in a roasting pan.
    5. 5
      Make flan:.
    6. 6
      Preheat oven to 350°F with rack in middle.
    7. 7
      Bring milk with cinnamon stick just to a simmer in a small heavy saucepan, then remove from heat and let steep, covered, 5 minutes.
    8. 8
      Remove cinnamon.
    9. 9
      Meanwhile, blend condensed milk and cream cheese in a food processor until smooth.
    10. 10

    11. 11
      Transfer to a large bowl, then whisk in hot milk.
    12. 12
      Divide among ramekins, then add enough boiling water to pan to reach halfway up sides of ramekins.
    13. 13
      Cover pan loosely with a sheet of foil and bake until custards are just set (they will still wobble slightly in center when tapped), 45 to 55 minutes.
    14. 14
      Remove ramekins from water bath and let stand at least 15 minutes (flan will continue to set).
    15. 15
      Just before serving (warm or at room temperature), run a thin knife around flans to loosen, then invert onto plates.
    16. 16
      Cooks' note: Flan can be made 2 days ahead.
    17. 17
      Chill in ramekins, uncovered, until cool, then cover.
