My boyfriend thinks it should be four stars. I was expecting this to be better, but it's still good. I used real vanilla extract instead of the bean and stick margarine instead of butter. It has a strong egg flavor, which I like, though I think most Americans don't like a sweet eggy taste (mind you, we were just eating it straight as it is apparently originally a pudding). It didn't have a super smooth texture - not grainy...mealy is the only way I can think of to describe it. Not terrible, but not ideal. If I made this again, I'd use whole milk. Personally, I think Betty Crocker's Boston Creme Pie Filling recipe is quite similar but much better. It doesn't have flour or butter for starters.
