Crème Anglaise

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.

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups 2% reduced-fat milk
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons bourbon

Preparation

  1. Heat milk in a medium saucepan over medium heat just until bubbles and steam appear (do not boil). Remove from heat.
  2. 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.
