    3       tb           Butter
    2       tb           Dark brown sugar
    2       tb           Brandy
    6                    Butter cookies
    8                    Egg yolks

   Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F).  In a skillet, melt the butter
   and add the chopped papaya.  Sprinkle with brown sugar and
   brandy.  Saute until the papaya is very soft.  Remove from heat

   Crumble the butter cookies and stir into the papaya mixture.
   Spoon into the bottom of a 8 inch square baking pan.  In a
   medium-sized bowl, beat the egg yolks and whole eggs until
   slightly thickened.  Heat the milk and sugar together and bring
   it to a boil.  Remove from heat.  Pour the milk slowly into the
   eggs, stirring constantly until well blended.  Pour over papaya
   in the baking pan.  Cover with foil.  Bake in the preheated oven
   for 20 to 25 minutes or until an inserted knife comes out clean.
