    Didn't last long

    elenita LOPEZ from FL

    My family loves flans so I am always on the lookout for a new recipe. We had this one for dinner tonight and everyone loved it. There was an extra one and my grandson started bidding on it as if we were at an auction. The bidding went up to $1.50 (it started at ten cents). I got to keep the money. My husband paid the money but everyone got a spoonful of it. I guess this one is a keeper

    New Family Favorite

    Dayvene Foss from COALINGA, CA

    This was a yummy recipe. We have had Flan before but this one was so easy and the kids loved it. I substituted peach nectar for the pear and it was great! Can't wait to try this with different flavors.

    Not Impaired Pear

    TRISH BALLARD from MILLERSTOWN, PA

    Tasty and so easy. Well ok, a tiny bit of effort, but oh so worth it. I served canned peaches on top of the flan, with a dollop of whipped cream. Add a mint leaf and you have a beautifully done dessert - kudos!

    I LOVE this recipe. I make a variety of flans and this one is now my favorite. The texture and flavor are both smooth and refreshing. I made it for my family and now it's the dessert on the list of request whenever we get together for a sit down family dinner and that's three times a week. Thanks a million!!!!

    Perfect Flan!

    Rossana Cardinale-Larrick from HAGERSTOWN, MD

    I was a little worried about trying this - especially getting the flan out of the ramikins. This recipe was easy to follow and the end results were perfect. The flan was creamy and delicious and the light pear taste was excellent. Will be making this often!

    Delicious!

    Aimee B from Chicago , IL

    This was the first Flan I've ever made and boy was it easy! I was a little scared at first cooking the sugar - but it turned out perfect. I actually cut this recipe in half and only made 4 cups instead of eight. I used 3 fresh pears instead of canned and the custard turned out perfect!
