Grandma's Cream Filling

"This delicious almond custard is one of my family's favorite comfort foods.  My sister and I request that my Grandma make it for us often.  I love to eat it with sliced bananas!   
2 cups milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
3 Tablespoons flour
3 egg yolks, beaten
2 Tablespoons butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Spray the bottom of a medium saucepan with non-stick cooking spray (to ensure that custard won't stick to pan) and pour in milk.  Scald milk (heat milk just to the point before it's going to boil-about 180 degrees).  In a bowl, mix together sugar, cornstarch and flour.  Add to heated milk and cook on low until thickened, stirring occasionally for 10-15 minutes.  Remove from the heat and stir in egg yolks, 1 Tablespoon at a time, stirring constantly.  Return pan to the heat and add butter and salt.  Stir until butter is completely melted (2-3 minutes).  Remove custard from the heat and allow to cool for 15-20 minutes.  Stir in almond and vanilla extracts.  Refrigerate.
TIP:  This custard is delicious served alone or with sliced bananas.  It would also make a delicious filling for banana cream pie.
