  • 2 cups milk
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, plus more for garnish
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup rum, optional
  • whipped cream, optional


  • Heat the milk to a low simmer in a saucepan.
  • While the milk is heating up, whisk sugar, spice and egg yolks until they are lighter in color and texture than they were when you started.
  • Take about 1/4 cup of the hot milk and quickly whisk it into the sugar/egg mix.
  • Repeat previous step two more times.
  • Transfer the milk/egg mix into the saucepan.
  • Stirring continuously with a wooden spoon, bring the custard to a low simmer and keep simmering until it is thick enough to just coat the back of the spoon.
  • Let the custard cool completely.
  • Stir in the cream and the rum (if using).
  • Serve cold, with whipped cream and pumpkin spice sprinkled on top.
