      This recipe was AMAZING!! I have tried many flan recipes and they were not nearly as delicious as this one. Although the first step of caramelizing the sugar had to be redone because you dont need to add water to it. I also made sure to let the cream cheese get to room temperature before whipping. My entire family loved it! Thanks for sharing :)

      This was not the texture that I was expecting for Flan. It could have been cook's error (mine) or it came out the way it was supposed to come out, just not what I was expecting, or what I've had in resturants. This was more like cheesecake than Flan, maybe because of the cream cheese. I had a little trouble with the sugar crystalizing (again cook's error), but I was able to fix it by adding more water and cooking it much longer. My Cuban Custards came out beautifully, and it taste good, which is why I have to give it the full 5 stars. I made a couple of different individual sizes. I will make this again when I want Cuban Custard. I like it a lot. Thanks for sharing your family's recipe.
