  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). In a heavy skillet, melt 10 tablespoons of the sugar over medium heat to a light brown syrup, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir or shake saucepan repeatedly. Pour immediately into a 9-inch baking dish or a flan pan; set aside. In a small bowl slightly beat egg yolks; set aside. In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until light and fluffy. Gradually add egg yolks. Stir in sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, water, remaining 2 tablespoons of the sugar, vanilla and salt. Pour cream mixture over the melted sugar and set the baking dish in a larger pan filled with hot water to 1/2-inch from the top. Bake 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 hours. Cool completely before serving.
