This recipe had the perfect ingredient list for me -- I was looking to use up egg yolks and heavy cream. I used half heavy cream and half milk with the tablespoon of vanilla recommended by other members, and it is delicious! One note -- I wasn't sure by what the "until mixture coats the back of a metal spoon" point was, but here's my recommendation: stir until it thickens, but do not let it come to a boil. When it starts to boil, it starts to get a finely lumpy texture. I pulled it off the stove at that point, so mine isn't perfectly smooth. But it is still delicious!!
