Vanilla Cream Pie Filling

This is not the last you will hear of Vanilla Cream Pie Filling.  She will also make future appearances in Boston Creme Pie (actually a cake), Chocolate Pie, and Coconut Pie.  I love her.  

2/3 c sugar
1/2 t salt
2 1/2 T cornstarch
1 T flour
1 1/2 c milk
1 1/2 c evaporated milk
3 egg yolks, slightly beaten
1 T butter
1/2 t vanilla

Mix sugar, salt, cornstarch and flour in a saucepan.  Gradually stir in milk and evaporated milk.  Cook over moderate heat, stirring constantly until mixture thickens and boils.  Boil 1 minute.  Remove from heat.

Slowly stir half the mixture into egg yolks.  Then blend into hot mixture in the saucepan.  Boil one minute more, stirring constantly.  remove from heat. 

Blend in butter and vanilla.  Cool, stirring occasionally.
