Crème Anglaise

Southern Living
We prepared our Crème Anglaise with milk instead of heavy cream to reduce the fat and calories. So expect a slightly thinner consistency but the same delicious flavor. Store leftover sauce in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 1 week, and serve over fresh berries.
Makes 2 cups (serving size: 2 tablespoons)


+ Add To Shopping List
1 3/4 cups 2% reduced-fat milk
1/3 cup sugar
4 egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons bourbon


Prep: 10 Minutes
Cook: 8 Minutes
Chill: 4 Hours

Heat milk in a medium saucepan over medium heat just until bubbles and steam appear (do not boil). Remove from heat.

Whisk together sugar and egg yolks in a medium bowl until blended. Gradually add heated milk to egg yolk mixture, whisking constantly. Return mixture to saucepan. Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, 6 minutes or until mixture thinly coats the back of a spoon. Pour mixture into a bowl. Stir in vanilla. Place plastic wrap directly on surface of mixture, and chill at least 4 hours. (Mixture will thicken slightly as it cools.) Stir in bourbon before serving.
