COOKING WITH SIMON: Favorite dessert for moms


PALESTINE — Egg Custard

2 cups milk

2 tablespoons sugar

2 egg yolks

2 tablespoons cornstarch

Slowly warm milk and sugar over low heat in a saucepan. In a separate bowl combine the egg yolks and cornstarch. Remove the milk from the heat and slowly add the milk mixture to the egg yolks while stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. Pour back into the saucepan and constantly stir while brining to a simmer and allowing to thicken. When it begins to thicken remove from heat and keep stirring. Set aside to cool before adding to the trifle.
