DIRECTIONS

  • Heat heavy cream in medium sauce pan over medium heat until simmering, stirring occasionally. In a separate bowl, whisk egg yolks, sugar and salt together. Add cornstarch into mixture, continue whisking until it is a pale yellow and thick.
  • When cream reaches full simmer, slowly whisk it into yolk mixture. Return mixture back to sauce pan, continue cooking over medium heat, whisking constantly until thick and glossy, about 1-2 minutes. Take off heat whisk in butter and vanilla. Transfer pastry cream to a bowl large enough to hold it, take some plastic wrap press directly onto surface, refrigerate until cold and set, at least 2 hours.
