1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 vanilla beans, split legthwise or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 large egg yolks
1/2 cup granulated sugar

(Makes about 2 1/2 cups)


Pour the milk and cream into to a medium-sized saucepan set over medium heat.

If using vanilla bean, scrape the seeds into the pan and then add the bean itself.

Bring the milk to a simmer.

Once heated, remove from heat and set aside to cool for 15 minutes.

Remove and discard the vanilla bean.

In a separate bowl, beat the egg yolks with the sugar.

If using vanilla extract rather than vanilla bean, add vanilla extract to the eggs and sugar. Beat for 3 minutes, until light and foamy.

Gradually stir in the milk, a few tablespoons at a time.

Return the custard mixture to the saucepan and cook over medium heat. Stir constantly until the custard starts to thicken. Do not let the custard come to a boil or else it will curdle.

Once thickened, allow the custard to cool. Custard will thicken as it cools.

Once cooled, refrigerate custard until ready to use.
