Expert Tips

  • If you live near a Latin American bakery, pick up some of the beautiful cookies you’ll find there. They often accompany flan when it’s served for dessert.
  • Custard mixtures like this one are always cooked with water surrounding them because they need gentle heat to keep from curdling.
