For a formal fete, freeze the custards in elegant wine glasses or brandy snifters. For a casual gathering, use small milkshake glasses or punch cups.

How to Make It

Step 1

Pour water to depth of 1 inch into bottom of a double boiler over medium heat; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and simmer. Whisk together eggs, egg yolks, and next 4 ingredients in top of double boiler over simmering water, and cook, stirring constantly, 8 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat; cool completely, stirring often.

Step 2

Meanwhile, beat cream at high speed with an electric mixer 3 minutes or until soft peaks form. Stir one-third whipped cream into cooled egg mixture until blended. Fold in remaining whipped cream. Spoon mixture into 8 (8-oz.) cups or glasses, filling half full; cover with plastic wrap. Freeze 6 hours to 2 days.
