  • Summary

    One of the most important steps in making custard is making sure the sugar is fully dissolved into the yolks. Be sure to beat them together until pale yellow ribbons form, since the sugar acts as a shield for the yolks, preventing them from curdling when you add the hot cream.

    Ingredients

    • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for rolling
    • 1 tablespoon sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
    • 1 tablespoon raw sesame seeds
    • 3 cups half-and-half
    • 2/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon granulated sugar, divided
    • 1/3 cup sliced ginger (from a 3-inch piece)
    • 1 stick cinnamon
    • 2 cloves
    • 8 large egg yolks, at room temperature
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • a 9-inch pie pan; pie weights or dried beans, a small culinary torch
