DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Lightly coat 6 ramekins or a one-quart baking dish with non-stick spray. Put a kettle of water on to boil (you'll need about 6 cups for the Bain Marie.
  • In a 2-cup glass measure, microwave the half&half until hot, but not boiling, 3 to 4 minutes on high, checking after each minute. Whisk in cinnamon, if using mixing well.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs and yolks well, until slightly thickened. Add salt and vanilla and mix well.
  • Stir the 1/2 cup Spenda into the hot cream, mixing until disolved. (If using Thik'n'Thin, combine it with the Splenda before adding it to the cream).
  • Very SLOWLY, while whisking continuously, dribble the hot cream into the eggs, As the eggs are tempered, add the cream a bit more quickly until it's completely incorporated. Taste and adjust sweetener, if needed.
  • Pour into prepared dish(es), though a strainer, if necessary. Place custard dish(es) in a deep 9'x9" pan. Pour in the boiling water up to the level of the custard, being careful not to get water in the custard. Dust top with freshly grated nutmeg, if desired.
  • Bake at 300 degrees F for 30 minutes for the ramakins, 35 minutes for the quart dish, until the custard is set - a bit "jiggly" in the center but a khife inserted about half-way from the rim comes out clean.
  • Serve with caramel sauce of fresh berries.
