Global.Potpourri's picture
Ingredients
  Milk 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Egg yolks 3
  Sugar 1 1⁄2 Tablespoon
  Salt To Taste (Few Grains)
  Vanilla extract 1⁄2 Teaspoon
Directions

Heat the milk in the top part of a double boiler.
Mix egg yolks, sugar, and salt thoroughly, but don't beat.
When bubbles appear around the edge of the milk, pour about a third of it into the egg mixture and blend well.
Pour this into the remaining milk in the double-boiler top.
Put over boiling water and cook, stirring constantly with a rubber scraper so that you can get into the corners and around the sides of the pan.
When the mixture thickens and coats a spoon, it is done.
Add vanilla, mix well, and cool.
