  1. Combine first 4 ingredients, stirring with a wire whisk until the sugar dissolves and mixture is smooth. Pour mixture evenly into 5 (5x1 inch) round individual baking dishes; place dishes in a large roasting pan. Prepare ½-inch water bath in roasting pan. Bake at 275 for 45 to 50 minutes or until almost set. Cool custards in water in pan or on a wire rack. Remove from water, cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight. Sprinkle about 1-½ tablespoons brown sugar evenly over each custard; place custards on cookie sheet. Broil 5-inches from broiler (with oven door partially opened) until brown sugar melts. Let stand 5 minutes to allow sugar to harden.
