This is for the 'temper egg' challenged. Though the recipe is 'temper' free, it truly comes out smooth and silky. From Southern Living, one basic recipe with 12 variations, from sweet to savory. See variations listed in instructions below. The amount yield depends on the size of your cups. You can bake ahead of time, but you should wait until just a few minutes before serving to caramelize the sugar, otherwise the caramelized sugar will begin to liquify if sits for more than an hour. Don't eliminate the waterbath. It creates a cushion from the heat, allowing the custard to bake slowly without curdling. Naturally, cook time varies, but they're easier to make than one thinks...guaranteed.
