 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      quart         milk
    3                    well-beaten egg yolks
    1                    egg white
      1/2  cup           sugar (or to taste)
    3                    rounded Tbsp flour
    2                    egg whites
    1      tsp           vanilla
 
 To the milk add the three egg yolks and one egg white; reserve the other
 two egg whites.  Add sugar to which the flour has been added and cook in
 a double boiler until slightly thickened.  It will be thicker when it
 cools.  Beat the remaining two egg whites and fold into hot custard. 
 Custard added to egg whites makes a smoother custard than egg whites
 added to custard.  Add vanilla and chill.  This was my great-grandmother
 Bessie’s recipe, which my grandmother still makes at Christmas. 
 Excellent with just a little nutmeg sprinkled on the top.
