Recipe ingredients and directions:
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt, optional

1 teaspoon vanilla
Garnishes or stir-ins, optional
In a large saucepan, beat together eggs, sugar and salt, if desired. Stir in
2 cups of the milk. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is
thick enough to coat a metal spoon and reaches 160 degrees F. Remove from
heat. Stir in remaining 2 cups milk and vanilla. Cover and refrigerate until
thoroughly chilled, several hours or overnight. Just before serving, pour
into a bowl or pitcher. Garnish or add stir-ins, if desired. Serve
Note: for faster preparation, heat milk until very warm before stirring milk
into eggs and sugar.

Fold the white into the rest.
Gradually add the alcohol.
Either add nutmeg right away, or sprinkle on top later.
AGE for at least 2 hours in refridgerator, uncovered.
We found that the original recipe was a bit strong--we use 1 cup brandy
instead of the other alcohols. Best near a warm fire and a loved one
to snuggle, or great at parties!

2 c heavy cream
2 c milk
1 tsp vanilla

formed; fold into mixture. Beat cream until soft peaks are formed;
stir into mixture. store in refrigerator over night; sprinkle with

(If you will not be using a copper bowl for beating the egg whites
then you will need to add 1/8 t cream of tartar to them first).
The liquor can be increased or deleted depending on personal taste.
