    Here's the one my mom shared with me recently. It's not as sweet as I thought it would be. Maybe a minor tweek here and there. But, it's still really good.

    2 cups whole milk (warmed, but not burned or boiled so it doesn't cook the eggs)

    3 large eggs

    1/3 cup sugar

    1/8 teaspoon salt

    1 teaspoon vanilla (I use pure vanilla for better flavor)

    1/8 teaspoon nutmeg


    Start the oven first so the mixture doesn't have to cool at all. While the milk is warming on the stove, I whip the eggs and add the other ingredients. Add the milk slowly to the egg mix, while whipping.

    425* oven 22 minutes (mine always take longer, you may need to adjust the time) Use the knife test for doneness.

    Here is the Custard recipe...Sorry I did not get it posted sooner. I have been very busy since we have returned home. I have so much to catch up on...And to top it off my daughter has come down with the flu which is VERY bad for my husband who just had a stem cell transplant...

    But I am so Thankful to be back home!

    Custard

    1 Gallon of Milk
    1 cup Corn Starch
    3 ¾ cups of Sugar
    15 Egg Yolks
    Vanilla
    Dash of Salt

    Combine Sugar, Corn Starch and Salt. Blend. Combine milk and egg yolks, gradually stir into sugar mixture. Cook over medium heat until mixture thickens and boils. Cook 1 minute stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add Vanilla. (2 big spoons full or according to taste) Put pot into a sink of cold water to cool and put wax paper over custard until it cools. After it cools put back into milk carton and refrigerate.
