Expert Tips

Flan is a Spanish baked custard that is coated with caramel. Cream cheese and pineapple gives this flan a Mexican twist.

This great make-ahead recipe can be made up to a day in advance. Leave the flan in the dish until serving time and unmold it just before serving.

Sprinkle each individual serving plate with cinnamon; place a wedge of the flan on the cinnamon. Arrange mango and kiwi fruit slices alongside each wedge.
