Basic Vanilla Sauce, Member mmseitz

You're absolutely right! The Original Vanilla Sauce Recipe does call for a beaten egg yolk tempered with either scalded milk or using a double boiler, as you described. ""Tempering"" eggs in a recipe is a technique that can produce scrambled eggs, if not done properly, as we well know! LOL!
