Rhubarb Custards

These custards from Martha Stewart Living couldn’t be any easier! (Or more delicious!)

Ingredients:
12 ounces rhubarb, trimmed and sliced
¾ cup sugar
1 cup whole milk
½ cup heavy cream or crème fraîche
⅓ cup all-purpose flour
2 large eggs, plus 1 egg yolk
Coarse salt
Butter, for dishes

Method:
1. Heat oven to 350°. Butter six, 5½ -inch gratin dishes (1 inch deep), and dust with sugar; arrange on a rimmed baking sheet.

2. Toss rhubarb with the sugar, and divide among dishes. Cover each first with parchment and then with foil, and bake until rhubarb is just beginning to release liquid and soften, about 30 minutes. Leave the oven on.

3. Purée milk, cream or crème fraîche, flour, eggs and yolk, remaining ½ cup sugar, and ½ teaspoon salt in a blender until smooth. Divide mixture evenly among dishes. Bake, uncovered, until just set, 22 to 24 minutes. Let cool for 20 minutes.
