Nutritional Facts

1 serving equals 530 calories, 34 g fat (19 g saturated fat), 368 mg cholesterol, 75 mg sodium, 54 g carbohydrate, 2 g fiber, 5 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, combine the cranberries, sugar, water and salt. Cook and stir over medium heat until berries pop,about 15 minutes. Remove from the heat. Spoon 2 tablespoons into each of eight 6-oz. custard cups; chill for 10 minutes. Refrigerate remaining cranberry sauce until serving.
  2. In a small saucepan, heat 1 cup cream over medium heat until bubbles form around sides of pan. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla. In a large bowl, whisk egg yolks and granulated sugar until smooth. Gradually whisk in heated cream mixture. Gradually stir in remaining cream.
  3. Transfer to eight 6-oz. broiler-safe ramekins in a baking pan large enough to hold them without touching. Place pan on oven rack; add very hot water to pan to within 1/2 in. of top of ramekins. Bake, uncovered, at 325° for 35-40 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean (centers will still be soft).
  4. Immediately remove ramekins from water bath to a wire rack; cool 10 minutes. Refrigerate until cold.
  5. Just before serving, blot custard with paper towels to remove any moisture. Sprinkle each cup with 1 teaspoon superfine sugar; place on a baking sheet. Broil 3-4 in. from the heat for 1-2 minutes or until sugar turns golden brown. Serve with remaining cranberry sauce. Yield: 8 servings.
