Ingredients

  • 1 cup half-and-half or milk
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup superfine sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract

How to Make It

  1. Gradually whisk together half-and-half and flour in a saucepan over low heat. Cook, whisking constantly, 5 minutes or until a thick paste forms. Remove from heat; cool. Cover and chill 1 hour or until cold.
