2. Put whipping cream into a bowl and use an electric mixer to whip it into stiff peaks, set aside
3. Whisk together egg yolks, sugar and water in the top of a double boiler. Place over it simmering
water. Whisk continuously until temperature reaches 160 F or yolks thicken and coat the back of a
spoon. Remove from top portion of the double boiler and place it on top of a bowl of ice to stop the cooking. Allow to cool for 5 minutes.
