Procedure

In a bowl, whisk together the egg, sugar, vanilla, flour, and cornstarch.

Gradually mix in the milk.

Cook the mixture over medium heat until it boils, stirring constantly.

Once thickened, remove from heat, add the butter, and stir until melted.

Let the cream cool, stirring occasionally. 

In a dish, lay down a layer of biscuits.

Spoon a layer of vanilla cream over the biscuits.

Continue layering biscuits and cream, ending with the cream.

Gently heat the heavy cream without boiling it.

Refrigerate the cake until the icing sets before serving.
