Sisters and Treats

The other day, my sweet sister made this lovely treat for us! It was so good I thought I'd share it on here. Thanks, Melissa!

1/2 cup sugar 
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
3 TBSP cornstarch
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
3 cups 2% milk
3 egg yolks
2 TBSP butter, cubed
2 tsp vanilla extract
Whipped cream and cinnamon

In a saucepan, combine the first five ingredients and stir in milk until smooth.  Cook and stir over medium heat until thick and bubbly.  Reduce heat to low and stir two minutes longer. Remove from heat.

Then, stir a small amount of the mixture into the egg yolks and return all mixture into the pan.  Bring to a slow boil, stirring constantly and then cook 2 minutes longer. Remove from heat.

Stir in butter and vanilla; cool 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Chill.

Serve with whipped cream and cinnamon.
