    Seriously easy to make custard. Hard to mess this one up. And delicious too. Used this to make tiramisu from scratch and it turned out amazing.

    I like this recipe much better than the one I had been using! I have been making this regularly for a friend who is terminal and unable to eat solid food and the doctors said she needs the calories and fat! Thanks for the help at a difficult time : )

    A really nice, light dessert. Not to sweet, but sweet enough to be satisfying. I topped it with mommyof2's "Whiskey Sauce Recipe" Definatly a keeper. This would make a good custard to put in cream puffs. Thanks for posting.
