Stirred Custard

Directions

  1. In a heavy medium saucepan use a wooden spoon to stir together egg yolks, milk, and sugar.
  2. Cook and stir continuously with the wooden spoon over medium heat until mixture just coats the back of a clean metal spoon. Remove pan from heat. Stir in vanilla.
  3. Quickly cook custard by placing saucepan in a large bowl of ice water for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  4. Pour custard mixture into a bowl. Cover the surface with plastic wrap to prevent a skin from forming. Chill at least 2 hours or until serving time. Do not stir. If desired, serve custard over fresh fruit. Makes about 8 servings.
