    3. 3
      Remove from the heat and cool to room temperature.
    4. 4
      Whisk together 3/4 cup sugar and the egg yolks in a medium-size bowl. Whisk in the flour, then strain the milk into the yolk mixture in a thin stream and whisk to mix.

    6. 6
      Once the mixture thickens, gently simmer for 1 to 2 minutes more. Do not boil rapidly or overcook, as the custard will curdle.

      Cool to room temperature, then cover loosely with plastic wrap and cool in refrigerator for 6 hours.
