 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      cups          heavy cream
    6      tablespoons   white granulated sugar
    5      large         egg yolks
    1      tablespoon    pure vanilla extract
                         Granulated sugar
 Scald cream in heavy-duty saucepan. Beat yolks, sugar and vanilla with
 electric mixer until pale and thick. SLOWLY pour hot cream into egg mixture
 while beating at the lowest speed. Ladle into custard cups and place in
 roasting pan. Pour very hot water into pan two-thirds up the sides of the
 cups. Bake at 325  for 35-45 minutes. Remove cups from pan and let cool. DO
 NOT OVERBAKE - the middles can still be 'nervous'. Chill if holding for any
 length of time before serving. Just before serving, sprinkle tops with
 granulated sugar and caramelize using either a propane torch or popping under
 a broiler until sugar is browned and bubbly.  Garnish with a few raspberries
 or other fruits if desired. Makes either 4 6-ounce servings or 6 4-ounce
