  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • Slowly pour the hot cream mix into the brown sugar mix, whisking constantly.
  • Pour the mix back into the pot and whisk in the butter. Return the pot to the stovetop and cook over medium low heat. Whisk constantly so the cream filling doesn’t burn on the bottom of the pot.
