- Heat the cream to just below a simmer in a small saucepot.
- In a separate bowl whisk the egg yolks and sugar together. Slowly pour into the hot cream while whisking, then return the entire mixture to the pot. Switch to a wooden spoon and cook the custard on medium-low heat until it coats the back of the spoon, about 3 minutes. Strain the custard, cool it to room temperature, and then chill until ready to serve.
