Then add the egg yolk mixture to the hot milk mixture, stirring constantly. Place the double boiler over medium heat and cook until tapioca mixture is very thick, about 15 minutes.

4. Beat egg whites until stiff. (Before beating, I always place my mixing beaters in the freezer compartment for 10 minutes to have them very cold. I also place my mixing bowl in the refrigerator to have the bowl chilled before placing the chilled egg whites into the bowl. )
