Prepare an ice bath by combining ice and cold water in your sink or a large bowl; set aside.
Beat the egg yolks with a whisk in a small bowl, until light and fluffy. In a large saucepan, combine the beaten egg yolks with the milk and sugar. Cook over medium heat, constantly stirring and scraping the bottom of the pan, until the mixture just starts to thicken and lightly coats the bottom of a spoon. Do not overcook, and do not let it come to a boil!
Turn off the heat and place the saucepan to the ice water bath. Stir for 2 minutes, scraping the sides and bottom of the pan as you stir. Mix in the cream and vanilla. Transfer to a pitcher, cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving.
