- 12 oz. (1 1/2 cups) granulated sugar
- 12 oz. (15 eggs) egg yolks
- 2 teaspoons maple extract
- Preheat over to 275F.

- In a medium bowl, place the egg yolks.
- In a large mixing bowl, place the cream mixture and a little bit of the egg yolks mixture. Stir together well.
- Place the rest of the egg yolks in the large bowl and stir quickly. You do not want the eggs to be scrambled.

- Strain the mixture into a large bowl.
- Fill each serving dish 1/4 of the way up.
