1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar

6 egg yolks

1/2 cup flour

3 3/4 cups Blue Diamond Vanilla or Hint of Honey Vanilla Almond Breeze

3 tablespoons butter or buttery spread

1 teaspoon almond extract

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

About 1/2 box vanilla wafer cookies

Whisk together sugar and egg yolks in a large saucepan. Whisk in flour, then slowly whisk in Almond Breeze. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook for 5 to 7 minutes or until mixture has thickened, stirring constantly. Stir in butter and extracts and cook for 1 minute more.
