This is my weekend recipe to cook for my family.Hubby always ask me every Friday about my weekend recipe as we seldom go to the mall and eat in the restaurant every weekend.We can save money  if I baked  and we eat  in the house every Sunday.

1 tablespoon vanilla extract
8 egg yolks

2. Add suger, butter and vanilla extract, stirring all the while. Remove from heat.
3. Beat egg yolks in mixing bowl. To egg yolks, gradually add milk mixture by spoonfuls, beating all the while. Stir well to avoid curdling.
