  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 cup whole milk
  • 2 egg yolks, wisked
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
Combine the milk and sugar in a medium saucepan and slowly heat on low until you have a light simmer.

In the separate bowl with your 2 wisked egg yolks, slowly add some of your warmed milk, whisking constantly. When the mixture is fully mixed, slowly add the egg mixture back into the saucepan. Continue to whisk.

Add the heavy cream. Cook on low and continue to stir until the custard base reaches reaches 160 degrees, stirring frequently.

Remove from heat and add in the cinnamon and vanilla. Let cool and then transfer to an air-tight container (or a strong Ziplock bag) and place in the refrigerator to chill.

  • 3 Fuji apples, peeled and sliced into small bite-sized pieces
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground allspice
  • 2 tbsp softened butter
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Generously rub a mid-sized casserole dish with butter.

Toss apples bits in lemon juice. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, spices, and flour and sprinkle over the apples. Toss the apples in the flour mixture until well combined.

Throw the whole tasty mix into the buttered dish. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30-40 minutes or until the apples are tender and syrupy and your house smells amazing. Allow to cool and then refrigerate until ready to use.

You can do the same with pumpkin pie. It comes out more homogeneous but just as tasty. In fact, just about any strong tasting pie would have potential.
