When you combine the sugar and corn starch before adding egg mixture in saucepan is it over heat?
sabrinaoziel, Off heat you mix those dry ingredients then you add the egg yolk mixture and mix well. After they are mixed well you put it on medium heat and stir constantly or it will get lumpy. (Both the cornstarch and the yolks are ingredients that will thicken the mixture.) Once it comes to the boil continue stirring and let it boil as time stated in the recipe, 1 minute, then remove from the heat. Then you will add the butter and vanilla, mix well. Cover with the plastic wrap letting it touch the entire surface of the custard so that it doesn't form a "skin" on the surface.
This looks delicious! Could I use all butter for the crust? I just don't like shortening.
