"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Directions:
Preheat oven to 300

In a large bowl, whisk together egg yolks and sugar until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is thick and pale yellow. Add cream and vanilla. Continue to whisk until well-blended.

Divide mixture into ramekins or custard cups. I pour the mixture through a strainer to omit bubbles.

Place in a water bath. Bake until set around the edges but loose in the center (40-45 mins).

Remove from oven and leave in the water bath until cool. Chill at least 2 hours.
