Combine milk and 3 tablespoons sugar in 2-quart glass measure. Microwave at HIGH for 5 to 6 minutes or just until mixture begins to boil, stirring at 3 minute intervals.
Combine egg and 1 tablespoon sugar in a small bowl; beat well, using a wire whisk. Gradually add cornstarch, beating constantly. Gradually stir one-fourth of hot milk mixture into egg mixture; add to remaining milk mixture, stirring constantly. Microwave at HIGH for 2 to 3 minutes or until thickened, stirring every 30 seconds. Remove from microwave, and stir 3 minutes. Stir in vanilla.
Spoon mixture into dessert dishes; chill until set. Garnish each with a strawberry.
Problem - the Recipe says to add conrstarch, but nowhere does it say how much, not even in the list of ingredients.

I noticed the lack of cornstarch in the ingredients too, but tried it with 2 Tablespoons. That seemed to work well, and it was very good and easy, but I'll try 1 Tablespoon next. The vanilla seemed like way too much -- I used 1 T. and will try 1 1/2 t. next. Perhaps that first tablespoon of vanilla should have been the cornstarch.

On the recipe for Microwave custard, it calls for corn starch, but it doesn't give the measurement.
