Eggnog Flan

eggnog flanI love flan, it’s soft and creamy texture and it’s sweetness.  It reminds me of home and it brings back childhood memories and it’s so easy to make and versatile that just with a few touches it can become a memorable dessert.  This year I have been experimenting with different desserts from eggnog and cranberry arroz con leche to pumpkin and peanut butter parfaits and I still have not decided which dessert I will be serving for the holiday celebrations.  This time I decided to give my traditional flan recipe a holiday twist  to by adding eggnog.

The recipe is very simple and this dessert very easy to make.  I also love how light flan which is perfect for Thanksgiving as you are usually so full with turkey, cranberry and all the other delicious holiday foods that sometimes you don’t even have room for dessert.
