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 :)
