The perfect New England Dessert, this maple custard will remind your taste buds of those leaf-shaped maple candies you ate as a kid and yet it's not overly sweet. Serve with whipped cream-topped hot chocolate for that extra winter indulgence.
This recipe was sent to me by a woman who received it from relatives in England. The crunchy sugar topping is a delicate treat. My daughter Danielle asks me to make this dessert year-round (it's her favorite recipe in my cookbook) but I like to wait until the berries are in season.
