This dessert is famous among the people of Saipan. I LOVE it because it's like comfort food for me. Who can resist crackers or angel food cake with a tasty, creamy custard on top and cinnamon sprinkles to round it out?? I have made this for numerous of our friends and they absolutely love it.

  2. HEAT ON MEDIUM:
    Melt butter in a pot and add milk. Add one of the cans of water. Bring to a boil. Lower the heat to medium.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat eggs, add second can of water then add cornstarch ad wisk together (VERY IMPORTANT TO CONSTANTLY STIR MIXTURE IN THE POT USING A WISK)
