1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line the bottom of a 13-x-9-x-2-inch baking pan with paper towels.
2. Split vanilla bean in half. Scrape out seeds, then add seeds and bean to a small, heavy saucepan. Whisk in milk. In a medium-size bowl, whisk together egg yolks and sugar until well blended. Heat the milk gently in a small saucepan just until it reaches simmering. Remove the saucepan from the heat.
