DIRECTIONS

  • In mixer bowl at high speed, beat egg yolks until pale yellow, 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Butter a 2-cup glass measuring cup (you will need it for the next step--so butter it now).
  • In a 2- to 3-quart pan, combine sugar and corn syrup.
  • Cook over medium-high heat and stir until sugar is dissolved and mixture comes to a rolling boil.
  • Immediately pour into the butter glass measuring cup.
  • Beating constantly at medium speed, pour syrup in a thin, steady stream into egg yolks (avoiding beaters).
  • Continue beating until mixture is at room temperature (7 to 10 minutes).
  • Add butter and vanilla.
  • Beat just until smooth.
