whisk the egg yolks and sugar together until pale and thick. In
a small saucepan, combine the egg yolk mixture, milk, cream, and
bay leaves. Heat gently over medium-low to low heat, stirring
constantly until it thickens enough to leave a velvety coating
on the back side of a wooden spoon (if you are using a
thermometer, the custard should reach about 175°F). Do not let
the mixture boil or it will curdle. Remove it from the heat as
soon as you have obtained the right thickness, and continue
stirring for 2 more minutes. Let cool. Leave the bay leaves in
the custard while it cools. Remove the bay leaves when you are
ready to serve. Place the berries in dishes, pour the custard
over them, garnish with the additional bay leaves, and serve.
