Maple custards

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
½ cup Pure maple syrup*, plus
4 teaspoons For topping
¾ cup Skim milk
⅔ cup Evaporated skim milk
2 larges Eggs
2 larges Egg yolks

*for the richest flavor, use syrup graded "Dark Amber" In a saucepan over high heat, bring ½ c maple syrup to a boil. Cook until thickened and reduced to about ¼ c, about 4 minutes. Reduce heat to low; pour in skim milk and evaporated skim milk. Stir until the syrup has blended with the milk. Remove from the heat. In a mixing bowl, lightly whisk eggs and egg yolks until combined. Gradually whisk the hot milk mixture into the eggs. Skim off any foam and pour the mixture into four 6 oz custard cups or ramekins. Preheat over to 350 degrees. Place the filled custard cups in a shallow baking dish and add enough hot water to come ⅔'s of the way up the sides of the cups. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center of a custard comes out clean. Serve the custards warm or chilled, with 1 t of the remaining maple syrup drizzled over each.
