  • 2 cups milk
  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  2. Whisk together remaining 1 cup sugar, egg yolks, milk, and flour in a heavy saucepan; bring just to a simmer over medium heat, whisking constantly.
  3. Add sugar mixture to milk mixture immediately, and cook, whisking constantly, for 5 to 7 minutes or until it has a pudding-like thickness. Stir in pecans. Cover, placing plastic wrap directly on filling, and chill 8 hours.
