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

  • 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.
