Ingredients
  Butter 2 Tablespoon
  Flour 2 Tablespoon
  Milk 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Freshly ground pepper To Taste
  Salt To Taste
Directions

1. Melt the butter in a saucepan over moderate heat without letting it brown. Add the flour, accurately measured, and stir, preferably with a wire whisk, until it is well blended.
2. Meanwhile, bring the milk almost but not quite to the boiling point. While stirring the flour and butter mixture vigorously, add the hot milk all at once. When the mixture comes to a boil it will thicken automatically. Simmer, if time allows, for five minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper and, if desired, a pinch of nutmeg.
