Nothing feels cozier than holding a Santa mug filled with Grandma's Southern Boiled Custard at Christmastime. This delicious, old-fashioned drink recipe is a fresh take on an old-time, family, Christmas tradition. You'll be happy to know that only five simple ingredients are needed: eggs, milk, heavy cream, sugar, and half of a vanilla bean. That's about as quaint as this dreamy beverage gets! If it's been a long time since you've had this custardy, nostalgic, holiday treat, just remember that, contrary to the name, it is usually chilled prior to drinking.
