Awesome Armaretto custard filling

I made this and everybody thought it was awesome! I get lots of compliments and hubby will eat it like pudding.

Lemon or vanilla flavoring can be used too.


1 cup milk

2 TB plus 1 tsp. Cornstarch

3/4 cup White sugar granulated

1/2 cup Water

4 egg yolks beaten

1 tsp. Almond extract

1 tsp. Amaretto like Disarano liquor


DIRECTIONS Mix milk, cornstarch, sugar in a medium sauce pan Add water & beaten egg yolks gradually. Cook over medium heat till thick and bubbly.  Stir constantly. When it gets to the rapid boil(bubbly) cook for one minute longer. Remove from heat and add almond and .Amaretto  Stir using a wisk. Cover with plastic wrap touching the filling to prevent a film when cooling and let cool completely. I put mine in the fridge.
