  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Cook and stir 1 cup sugar in small saucepan on medium heat 5 min. or until completely dissolved and deep golden brown in colour. Immediately pour into 9-inch round pan; tilt pan to evenly cover bottom with syrup.
  • Blend milk and cream cheese in blender until smooth. Add 1 cup of the remaining sugar, eggs and pumpkin; blend well. Pour over syrup in pan; cover with foil. Place pan in larger pan. Add enough water to larger pan to come halfway up side of filled pan.
  • Bake 50 to 55 min. or until knife inserted in centre comes out clean. Remove flan from water-filled pan; place on wire rack. Cool completely. Refrigerate 4 hours.
  • Meanwhile, bring remaining sugar and 2 Tbsp. water to boil in small saucepan; cook 5 min. or until golden brown, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Add nuts; stir until evenly coated. Spread onto foil-covered baking sheet. Cool completely.
  • Run knife around edge of pan to loosen flan just before serving; unmold onto plate. Break nuts into smaller pieces; sprinkle over flan.

How to Unmold the Flan

Bake and refrigerate flan as directed. Run metal spatula or knife around edge of pan. Invert flan onto plate; shake gently to loosen. Gently twist pan to remove flan from pan. To soften any remaining caramel, dip bottom of pan in hot water; spoon caramel over flan.

Special Extra

Add 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. grated gingerroot to the cream cheese mixture before pouring into prepared pan.

Storage Know-How

Store any leftover flan in refrigerator, and store any leftover candied nuts in airtight container at room temperature. Sprinkle nuts over flan just before serving.
