Great Recipe, Great Video, But Don't Forget The Eggs :)

This recipe was great except the text leaves out the eggs -- oops! Can you fix that? The text also leaves out the part made clear in the video about refrigerating the custards after baking. The video by the chef was wonderfully detailed and instructive. I did not want to use 10 egg yolks, so I cross-referenced this with a recipe on Williams-Sonoma which used 5 yolks and halved the main ingredients based on that recipe. I love getting real tips from chefs - bravo!
