I love this! I always make it to go with my gingerbread. This is just like Birdseye Custard; but without the lumps!(smile)

So yummy and easy to make, However I cheated and used the Kitchen Aid, which made it very smooth and lump free. I have been craving custard but I refuse to pay $6.00 at the local grocery store. WOW - This would make a really quick and wonderful dessert for company or picky grandchildren. Thank you so much for posting. I'm re-posting for my Facebook Buddies!

this turned out fabulous though I did have to put it in for a minute longer but I think that is because I added the vanilla too soon otherwise awesome recipe thank you for posting!!!
