SPANISH CUSTARD RECIPE - NATILLAS DE LECHE TRADICIONAL

Although the exact origin of natillas (custard in English) is not known, nuns in convents across Europe prepared them. One of the theories is that the nuns actually developed the dessert. No matter where natillas came from, one thing is certain, they conjure up childhood memories for many Spaniards, and along with flan, cuajada, and crema catalana are a comfort food in Spain. This recipe is for the basic vanilla-flavored natillas, that are thick, creamy, and a rich yellow color. Although infused with lemon and cinnamon flavor when cooking, sprinkle with cinnamon on top just before serving. Other popular flavors for natillas include chocolate and turron.
