French Cream Custard Filling

This was the filling for the Canada Day strawberry tarts. I'm not a custard lover, but this is quite yummy. It is also very good as filling for cream puffs.

1 cup sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
2 tbsp. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
3 c. milk
3 egg yolks, beaten slightly
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. heavy cream, whipped

Combine first 4 ingredients in heavy saucepan. Stir in milk. Cook, stirring constantly, until sauce is thickened and smooth. Add about 1/2 cup of hot mixture to egg yolks, stirring constantly, and stir into hot mixture. Cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes. Cool, then chill. Fold in vanilla and whipped cream. Makes about 4 cups.
