Flan De Queso-Cream Cheese Flan

Flan is something I discovered many years ago while living in Mexico. It quickly became one of my favorite desserts out there. I tried many versions of flan, from the original one to coffee or coconut, but when I tried for the first time the  flan with cream cheese I was very impressed. Creamy, rich and delicious, the Flan de Queso  or cream cheese flan makes a great and quick dessert for a scrumptious grand finale of a dinner with friends or family.

This recipe is so easy that I am sure you will come back to it again and again. So, here you have it!
