  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Heat the evaporated milk and ginger in a small saucepan over medium high heat. Bring it to a boil, then remove from heat.
  3. Whisk together the whole eggs, egg yolks, and sugar in a medium bowl until thick and pale yellow.
  4. Pour a small amount of hot milk over the egg mixture, and whisk to combine. Slowly whisk the remaining hot milk into the egg mixture.
  5. Place drained tofu and vanilla extract in a blender and add the milk-egg mixture. Puree until smooth. Strain the mixture into a bowl and let it stand for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally to help remove some of the foam from the top. Divide the mixture evenly into 10 (6-ounce) ramekins (see Chef Tips).
  6. Place ramekins into a roasting pan about 4 inches deep. Add boiling water to the roasting pan to immerse the ramekins halfway. Bake for 45 minutes, or until the custards are set around the edges but slightly wobbly in the center. Remove ramekins from the oven and let them cool completely. Transfer ramekins to the refrigerator and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
  7. Make the Brown Butter Ginger Cookies.
  8. Crumble cookies on top of each chilled pot de creme and serve immediately.

Chef Tips

You can easily halve the Pot de Creme recipe and use smaller 4-ounce ramekins to get 6-8 portions. As the pots will be smaller, check them for doneness after 40 minutes.
