Although it's simple to make, this dessert is the No. 1 favorite at my house. And when I serve it to guests, I'm always asked for the recipe. You can use strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries—whatever's in season.—Sally Kendrick, Bishop, California


  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Assorted fresh berries


  1. In a saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch and salt. Gradually stir in milk until smooth. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Add a small amount to eggs; return all to pan, stirring constantly. Cook and stir for 2-1/2 minutes or until mixture reaches 160°.
