Simple Rich Vanilla Pastry Cream

Submitted by: JO_JO_BA

Introduction

There is NO mistaking the vanilla flavour with this pastry cream! It's not sweet like a pudding would be, but it's rich and decadent, and the perfect filling for mini tarts or as a flan base.

Ingredients

    1/3 cup sugar (Stevia also works well here... about 1/4 tsp)
    3 tbsp cornstarch
    1/4 tsp salt
    2 1/2 cups whole milk
    1 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract

Directions

In a saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and salt.
