Vanilla Bean Pudding and Raspberry Parfait Recipe at
Combine sugar, cornstarch and salt in heavy medium saucepan. Scrape in seeds from vanilla bean; reserve bean pod. Whisk until no corn- starch lumps remain. Very gradually whisk in half and half, then 1/4 cup cream and egg yolks. Add reserved vanilla bean pod. Whisk over medium heat until pudding thickens and boils (large bubbles will break on surface), about 8 minutes. Reduce heat to low and whisk 2 minutes longer.

Transfer pudding to medium bowl. Press plastic wrap directly onto surface. Refrigerate pudding until cold and set, at least 8 hours and up to 1 day.

Remove vanilla bean and discard. Whisk pudding to loosen. Add brandy. Add remaining 2 tablespoons cream to loosen pudding, if necessary. Whisk until smooth. Spoon 1/3 cup pudding into each of four 9- to 12-ounce wine goblets or parfait glasses. Top each with several berries. Repeat layering with remaining pudding and berries. Cover and chill up to 8 hours.
