|Ingredients:||1/2 vanilla bean
3 Tbsp sugar
1-1/2 c milk
1-1/2 c cream
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Ground mace, to taste
|Preparation:||Split the vanilla bean and scrape out the seeds, set aside. In a bowl over simmering water, whisk together the eggs, sugar and vanilla bean seeds. Keep whisking until a ribbon is formed and the mixture has been heated to 140 degrees. Hold it at this temperature for 2-3 minutes, and allow the mixture to thicken. Stir this mixture into the milk. Stir in the cinnamon.
Refrigerate this for 2 hours or until cold. Whip the cream and add it to the egg mixture. Sprinkle the top with the mace before serving.
Yield: 4 servings
|Notes:||Diana asked about adding eggs to heated milk then cooling; I found this one at FoodTV (it's backward: heat the eggs, then add the milk):
