  1. 1 Spray 8 (6-oz) custard cups with cooking spray. In small microwavable bowl, sprinkle gelatin on water. Let stand about 2 minutes to soften. Microwave on High 30 to 45 seconds, stirring after 15 seconds, until gelatin is dissolved.

Stir small amount of whipping cream into egg yolk mixture; slowly stir mixture into whipping cream in saucepan. Cook over low heat about 10 minutes, stirring constantly, until custard coats a spoon. DO NOT BOIL. Remove from heat. Stir in 1 1/2 teaspoons brandy. Cover surface with waxed paper. Cool 15 minutes. Refrigerate until mixture is cold, at least 4 hours or overnight, until serving time.
  4. 4 To unmold, run knife around edge of cups to loosen; turn upside down onto individual dessert plates. Garnish with mint leaves. Serve with crème anglaise. Cover and refrigerate any remaining gelatin.
