                         FOR THE CARAMEL
    1      cup           sugar
      1/2  cup           water
                         FOR THE CREAM
      1/2  cup           sugar
    2      cups          heavy cream
    2      cups          evaporated milk
    1      teaspoon      vanilla extract
    1      tablespoon    Grand Marnier
                         the peel of one whole orange
    5                    egg yolks
 
 Butter 8 six-ounce ramekins. Place water and sugar in a glass mixing bowl;
 microwave on high until dark brown and bubbly. This takes about 12 minutes,
 but watch it carefully because it goes from brown to burned in seconds.
 Immediately pour the caramel into the cups, dividing evenly.
 
 Preheat oven to 325o. Blend all ingredients except egg yolks in a saucepan.
 Cook until just warmed.  Remove from heat. Cool slightly and strain to
 remove orange peel. Whisk in egg yolks. Pour mixture into ramekins on top of
 caramel. Place ramekins in a large baking pan and fill pan halfway with warm
 water. Bake 1 hour and 15 minutes. Remove ramekins from oven and chill
 several hours. These will keep in the refrigerator for several days. To
 serve, invert onto individual serving plates.

 NOTES : We like to serve fresh raspberries or strawberries that have been
 marinated in Grand Marnier with this dessert. The tartness of the berries
 really sets off the flavor of the caramel.
