When you see the Blue Cow Logo on a product, it means it’s made with 100% Canadian quality milk.



In small saucepan heat cream over medium heat just until small bubbles begin to form around edges; remove from heat.

In medium bowl whisk sugar with egg, egg yolks and vanilla until well blended. Gradually whisk hot cream into egg mixture until blended.

Ladle into 6 lightly buttered (6 oz/175 mL) ovenproof custard cups. Place in baking dish filled with water so that it reaches halfway up sides of cups.

Bake in preheated 350 °F (180 °C) oven 30 to 35 min or until a knife inserted in center of custard comes out nearly clean (center will be jiggly). Remove from hot water; refrigerate until cold.

Just before serving, place custard cups on baking sheet. Sprinkle custard with brown sugar. Broil about 3 in (7.5 cm) from broiler for about 1 min, or until sugar melts and turns golden (watch carefully so sugar doesn't burn). Remove from oven, serve topped with strawberry.
