-3 cups heavy or whipping cream
-6 egg yolks
-1/3 cup sugar
-1 tsp vanilla extracts

stir in cream.

constantly, until just coats back of metal spoon,
about 15 minutes (do not boil). Stir in vanilla.
4. Pour mixture into 1-1/2 quart broiler-safe casserole;
refrigerate until well chilled, about 6 hours. (I have
also used individual ramekins/custard cups for a
prettier presentation)
5. Preheat broiler if manufacturer directs or use a
kitchen torch. Sift turbinated sugar over chilled
cream mixture; broil or run kitchen torch back and
forth, across the surface until the sugar melts.
Refrigerate.
