3 egg yolks
7 Tbsp. sugar
1/3 cup water
3/4 cup butter, softened

1 Tbsp liqueur, optional
1/3 cup ground nuts, optional
1 1/2 tsp vanilla, optional

Beat yolks until light, set aside. In a heavy 2 1/2 qt. sauce pan,

constantly. Continue to beat until light, fluffy, and cool to the
touch. In a medium bowl, cream butter. Gradually add butter to
yolk mixture, beating constantly, about 2 Tbsp. at a time until
smooth, shiny, and spreadable. Flavor as desired.

Stiffly whipped cream or vanilla pastrycream may be added if desired.

Use immediately or chill until ready to use.

Yield: 1 1/2 cups. To make 3 cups, double amounts of egg yolks,
sugar, and butter; use 1/2 cup water. For flavorings, double
amounts of liqueur or vanilla, or use 3/4 cup ground nuts.
