    hepcat1's Note:

    I use this recipe to make my Stars and Stripes Berry Trifle. It comes together very easily; I sometimes reduce the sugar by a tablespoon if I'm in the mood for something a bit less sweet, but either way it's delicious! Cooking time includes time to chill. Note: If you use this recipe to make the trifle, be sure to double it to get the needed four cups.

      This was delicious, and very easy to make. My guests were practically licking the bowl! I used the custard with the Stars and Stripes Berry Trifle recipe. I made the custard the night before, which saved time. This is a new favorite for my family.

      A real light creamy custard to use up those egg yolks that you are sometimes left with. (I had them leftover from Navel Orange Soufflé). I will use this for many recipes that call for a custard. Tonight though I served it with Stewed Rhubarb for a simple end to our dinner. You have a winner here :) A 'keeper' for me:)
