Exactly what I was looking for! I'm a Northerner (Yankee..LOL) that's fallen in love with Boiled Custard...and all the recipe's I have tried in the past never got thick enough till yours. The past recipe's were 2 quarts of Milk to 5 eggs, I think the trick with yours is more eggs! I doubled your recipe and made last night with Splenda (diabetics in family) and it was superb! Yummy Thanks so much!

I'm a stay-at-home mom, school volunteer, church volunteer, etc., and I live in Middle Tennessee. I like to read, visit the mountains, crochet, cook, etc. My favorite cookbook at this time is Recipe Hall of Fame Quick & Easy Cookbook. My passions are raising children with good moral character, being a good Christian, and food! My pet peeves are recipe instructions that leave out what to do with one of the ingredients, and people who won't put their shopping carts in the cart corrals! I have twin daughters who are in their second year of college and a son who is 16. My girls' college is close enough that I can come by every couple of weeks or so. When I tell them I'm coming, they ask Are you bearing baked goods?. Usually, I am, to the excitement of their suitemates!
