"Here's an easy dessert that my whole family loves," says Wilma Lincoln from Grinnell, Iowa. "I use an artificial sweetener when I make it for diabetic dinner guests and pretty it up with a sprinkle of nutmeg."
Sized just right for a twosome, these elegant nut-crusted custards make a simple but scrumptious finale for any meal. “Best of all,” shares Anna Erickson from Terrebonne, Oregon, “they whip up in a ‘heartbeat’ for busy weeknight celebrations.”
Inspired by a favorite ice cream flavor, I created this make-ahead recipe to free up some time in the kitchen. You can also serve this as a custard if you choose to not caramelize the top. —Eleanor Froehlich, Rochester, Michigan
