In the top of a double boiler, scald one cup of the cream. While cream is scalding, sift together in a small saucepan the sugar (use a bit less than the ½ cup if you wish) flour and salt. Blend in the remaining ½ cup cream. Add gradually the scalded cream; stir constantly while adding.
Bring rapidly to a boil over direct heat. Stir gently and constantly; cook Wash the double boiler top to remove the scum from scalding cream. Pour the cream mixture back into the double boiler and place over simmering water.
Cover and cook 5-7 minutes, stirring 3-4 times. Vigorously stir about 3 tablespoons of this mixture into 3 slightly beaten egg yolks. Immediately blend into mixture in boiler. Cook over simmering water for 3-5 minutes stirring slowly but constantly to keep mixture cooking evenly.
