    Directions

    1. Separate eggs; set yolks aside. Reserve whites for another use.

    2. In a large saucepan, combine milk and vanilla extract. Bring to boiling, whisking occasionally.

    3. In a large bowl, whisk together egg yolks and sugar until thoroughly combined. Slowly add milk mixture to eggs whisking vigorously. Pour mixture back into saucepan.
