Egg custard is my father’s favorite sweet treats. I remember as a kid having it served with dinner at least once a week.
This dessert is just sweet enough for a light dessert and perfect alongside just about any dish! The recipe comes from my Great Grandma Garrison, who my mother says “was the best cook in Douglas County.” Many of my mother’s recipes, came from her.
You want a really light and fluffy custard? Be sure and pick-up a couple dozen eggs from your local farmers market- the yolks make this dish golden!
