I am not a fan of the fillings made with icing sugar and shortening. This recipe has been around for more than 50 years and is very good tasting and texture.


  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp. butter
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla


  • Heat milk.
  • Mix sugar, cornstarch, salt: add hot milk.
  • Cook over hot water, stirring until thick; cook until there is no taste of raw starch.
  • Beat egg, add milk mixture; return to double boiler and cook until egg thickens
  • Remove from heat, add butter and vanilla.
  • Cool before putting into cream puffs or whatever you are filling.
