Vanilla Custard - Bon Appetit
Yield: 1 Cup
Ingredients and directions for this recipe
1 1/2 c Whipping cream

Using the whole vanilla bean gives this custard a wonderful unique taste!
Place cream in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Scrape in the seeds from
the vanilla bean; add pod. Bring to simmer. Remove from heat. Cover and let
stand 1 hour to let flavors marry.
Whisk yolks and sugar in medium bowl to blend. Bring cream mixture to

mixture to saucepan and stir until the custard thickens and coats spoon
(about 4 minutes). Do not boil. Strain into bowl. Cover and chill.
