2 egg yolks
1 tsp vanilla

Do you sweeten the filling? Mine is very similar except you add one can of "sweetened" condensed milk and one can of evaporated milk and an extra cup of whole milk. I use a lot less on the melted sugar.

Nope....just 1 can of evaporated milk....the sweetness comes from the carmelized sugar....not neccesary to add it to the custard. It's so simple it's almost ridiculous, but the evaporated milk is the key!
