  3. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, sugar, and cornstarch until it turns light yellow.

  4. Temper the eggs by gradually pouring the hot milk mixture, about 1 cup at a time, into the egg mixture, whisking constantly (this is important, otherwise, you’ll make scrambled eggs).

  5. Pour the mixture back into the pan.

  6. Place over medium heat and stir constantly with a wooden spoon until the eggnog begins to thicken, in about 6 to 7 minutes.

  7. Remove from the heat and immediately stir in the remaining ½ cup milk to stop the cooking.
