Cinnamon Creme Anglaise

With the berry season right around the corner, this is one pretty, easy and delicious dessert you will certainly want to make to wow your family and friends alike.

Here is my recipe:
2 cups heavy cream
1/3 cup sugar
1 cinnamon stick, 3 inches long
4 large egg yolks

Here is how I put this recipe together:
1. Combine milk, sugar, and cinnamon stick in small saucepan. Cook over med heat stirring constantly until sugar dissolves (about 5 min).

2. Place egg yolks in medium bowl, whisk until blended. Gradually add half of hot milk mixture to egg mixture, stirring constantly. Leave cinnamon in pan. Now add the egg and milk mixture back to the remaining milk mixture in the pan. Cook over medium heat stirring constantly until mixture thickens (about 6 to 8 minutes). Do not allow mixture to come to a boil. Remove cinnamon stick. Pour custard into small bowl. Place bowl in larger bowl filled with ice and stir until custard is room temperature. Remove small bowl from ice, cover, and refrigerate.

3. To serve, spoon over fresh berries, fruit, or cake.
