Here are three that I love. I believe the first one I got from CC, (sorry I don't have the name to give credit), the other two are old ones from my recipe box that I've had for years. Hope this helps.


4 C. Milk
¼ C. + 1 T. Granulated sugar
3 T. Plain gelatin
1 ½ t. Vanilla
4 Large eggs, separated

In a large saucepan, soften gelatin in cold milk. Place pan over hot water, stirring to dissolve. Whisk together yolks and ¼ C. sugar until light and pale yellow. Whisk in the milk and cook stirring constantly until smooth and thick. Remove from heat and set aside until warm. Beat whites, add 1 T. sugar and vanilla and beat until soft peaks form. Fold into the custard and chill until thickened.


Mix in saucepan ½ C. sugar, ½ t. salt and 1/3 C. flour. Stir in 2 C. milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring until it boils. Boil 1 min. Take from heat. Stir a little over half of the mixture into 2 eggs, or 4 yolks, beaten. Blend into hot mixture and bring JUST to boiling. Cool. Blend in 2 t. Vanilla.


2 Envelopes unflavored gelatin 1 C. Sugar
¼ C. Cold water       2 C. Milk, scalded
8 Egg yolks         2 t. Vanilla

Soften gelatin in cold water. Beat egg yolks with sugar until smooth and creamy. Gradually add hot milk. Cook over med heat, stirring constantly, until smooth and thickened. Remove from heat, add gelatin and stir until dissolved. Add vanilla. Cool. Stir now and then to prevent a skin from forming on the cream. Makes about 3 cups.
