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.
