    I have this going on the stove now, and it just won't thicken.. Tried asking more cornstarch.. Nothing. Tastes great, but won't thicken! Ugh!!! I wish I would've had my grandmother write this down for me

    First time making natilla, as a kid my mother would make this for us as a special treat. Loved it! It was easy to figure out the recipe, custard thickened in about 20 minutes on constant stirring. I feel the recipe could have used a 1/4 cup more sugar, which I will add next time to recipe. I also used 5 tsp of cornstarch and is thick enough, currently in the fridge setting. I like this recipe.

    Directions are a bit confusing. They mention mixing egg and yolk together in cold milk, but the recipe doesn't mention "egg" in the ingredients list. I assumed the author meant to say mix SUGAR, yolks, and cold milk together. I also increased cornstarch to 5 tsps. Tasted great

    Thought I was going to die standing over the stove! I must have stirred for 45 minutes! This tasted perfect though.
