One of the first sweet recipes I learned to make when I was very young was the delicious natillas, a traditional dessert in Spanish gastronomy that is never missing at home or in restaurants.
The natillas are a very easy recipe to make and at the same time very economical because its ingredients are products that we always have available and that are within everyone's reach (egg, milk and sugar).
Like all traditional recipes there are many ways to make natillas, it depends on each person's taste, some people add vanilla and some don't, others like it thicker, others lighter!!! I personally like them with vanilla, as it gives them a delicious flavor and I like the texture of thick custard better!
