Roasting the garlic mellows its raw taste, giving it a flavor similar to chestnuts. The custard is easy to make, so don't reserve it just for company meals.

Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C). Lightly spray six ½ cup (118 ml) custard cups with cooking spray. Set aside.

Peel and squeese roasted garlaic cloves into a food processor or blender.

Puree garlic with milk until smooth. Blend in remaining ingredients; process until smooth.

Divide garlic mixture amoung prepared custard cups. Place filled custard cups in a large baking pan. Add enough water to pan to come halfway up side of cups. Bake until flans are gently set, about 35 minutes. Allow to cool slightly while custard cups remain in water.

Run a thin-bladed knife around outer edge of each flan and unmold onto serving plates. Serve warm. Flans can be made ahead and refrigerated for up to a day in a sealed container. Reheat in a 350F/180C oven for 5 minutes.
