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
1/2 cup Water
4 egg yolks beaten
1 tsp. Almond extract
1 tsp. Armaretto like Disarano liquor
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 Armaretto. Stir using a wisk.
Cover with plastic wrap touching the filling to prevent a film whe cooling Znd let cool completely. I put mine in the fridge.
