DIRECTIONS

  • Blend the cornstarch with a little of the milk. Add the remaining milk.
  • Add the egg and cream, whisk well.
  • Pour the mixture into a small saucepan and stir constantly over a low heat until the custard thicks. DO NOT BOIL as your mixture may curdle.
  • Alternately, instead of the saucepan mixture-you can use the micro-wave. Use medium low heat and stir at 1 minute intervals until the custard thickens.
  • Stir in the ground almonds, vanilla and sugar.
  • Serve warm or cold as desired.
