      Oh this is the best custard filling I have ever eaten. I gave to a friend and he said he normally did not like custard but loved this. I used as a popover filling here are my changes. At first I cut in half but soon found out I needed the whole recipe so - for the whole recipe 4 eggs 6 Tablespoons of sugar otherwise it was the same.Oh I only used the 1 Tablespoon of cornstarch.
