Exactly what I was looking for! I'm a Northerner (Yankee..LOL) that's fallen in love with Boiled Custard...and all the recipe's I have tried in the past never got thick enough till yours. The past recipe's were 2 quarts of Milk to 5 eggs, I think the trick with yours is more eggs! I doubled your recipe and made last night with Splenda (diabetics in family) and it was superb! Yummy Thanks so much!
