5
egg yolks, beaten
1 1/2
cups milk
1/4
cup sugar
1 1/2
teaspoons vanilla
 
Fresh fruit, such as blueberries or strawberries

Directions

  1. In a heavy medium saucepan use a wooden spoon to stir together egg yolks, milk, and sugar.

  3. Quickly cook custard by placing saucepan in a large bowl of ice water for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
