  • Make pudding with them. Use 3/4 c. sugar, 3 T. cornstarch or 1/3 c. flour, 2 c. milk, and 1 tsp. vanilla. Mix your dry ingredients together in a saucepan, gradually add the milk, and cook over medium heat until it begins to thicken. Stir your egg yolks, add a little of the hot mixture to them to temper them, add them back to the pan and cook for 2 more min. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla. Pour into serving bowls and chill. Vanilla pudding!!! You can also make chocolate by increasing the sugar to 1 cup and adding 3 T. cocoa powder.

  • Make a yellow cake. Make custard, as mentioned above and you can also add coconut and a pie crust for a pie. Make homemade pudding. Make a lemon filling for the cake,
