8 1/2 cups milk

2 cups sugar

2 small cinnamon sticks

8 egg yolks

1 cup brandy


  1. Combine 8 cups of the milk, sugar and cinnamon in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Simmer, stirring occasionally, 15 minutes.
  2. In a bowl, combine the egg yolks with the remaining milk. Slowly pour into the milk mixture and simmer, stirring frequently, until it reaches the consistency of a thick sauce, about 10 minutes. Stir in the brandy and remove from heat. Pour into a pitcher and chill.
