Baked Custard
Carolee Heim

6 eggs, whisked

2/3 cup sugar

tsp. (scant) salt

4 cups hot milk

2 tsp. vanilla

Combine eggs, sugar and salt; slowly add hot milk.  Place in a high 2 quart casserole dish in hot water. Bake at 325 degrees for 40 minutes; or use custard cups and bake 30 minutes.

This is my “comfort food”. The ladies whom I invite to share my dinner enjoy it because they can’t buy it, and it is a nice light dessert – better than ice cream, they say.  I begin making this in the 50’s and still do.
