Wendy's Crème Caramel

Creme Caramel
There's a nasty story associated with this recipe. I'd been on a diet for several weeks before visiting Wendy back East. One night she popped this out of the oven. I couldn't stand the pressure -- it kept calling my name. I think I ate half of it. That's why God gave us Mondays -- for starting new diets!

1/2 C sugar
6 eggs
3 C milk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
6 tbsp sugar

Pre-heat oven to 350º. Spray round baking dish, cake pan, or glass pie pan with cooking spray.  Melt 1/2 C sugar in small sauce pan (Teflon-coated is easier to clean up) over medium heat. When caramelized, pour in round baking dish, cake pan, or glass pie pan and quickly coat the bottom. Beat remaining ingredients together. Pour over caramelized sugar. Place filled dish in a larger pan and add enough boiling-hot water to reach halfway up the side of the smaller dish. Bake at 350º for 45 min or until knife comes out clean.  Refrigerate for two hours, or until cooled, then carefully turn over onto a plate.  Will keep refrigerated for up to three days.
