Brandied Custard Crepe Filling

“This recipe came from the back of a package of pre-made crepes I bought many years ago. It's the best custard, very creamy and sweet. It's great all by itself, or to use as a crepe filling (as the title defines). But I've also used it to sweeten up a bowl of fresh fruit. Since I have kids, I usually make this without the Brandy and it's just as good.”
