  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Butter ten 3/4-cup ramekins; dust with sugar. Bring milk, 2 1/2 tablespoons sugar, and salt to boil in small saucepan, stirring to dissolve sugar; remove from heat.
  2. Melt butter in heavy medium saucepan. Add flour; stir 1 minute. Whisk in milk mixture. Cook over low heat until mixture thickens and comes to a boil, whisking until smooth. Whisk in egg yolks and Chambord. Transfer to a large bowl.
