Reviews for Almond Custard
"I just saw this recipe and it looked good. The milk/butter problem has been solved but did you forget to add confectionary sugar to the heavy cream before making whipped cream? Or is it purposely omitted?"
"Why give it a 1 star for a misprint? The directions say milk...so obviously it is a minor misprint. Did you try it? By giving it a 1 star (which I find rude) the overall rating is lowered and now many people might not even bother trying it. The recipe should be rated on it's merits not because you failed to read the directions in order to clarify the typo. I haven't tried it yet, but absolutely will make it prior to rating."
"Is there a misprint in this recipe. 3 1/3 cups of butter, should it be milk instead ?"
"The ingredients say butter, but the directions say milk (both should say milk). Regardless, it is very good!"
