    • Hi Jody, sorry for the delay getting back to you. You can definitely use cornstarch. Omit flour and heat milk, salt, pepper… Mix 1 tablespoon cornstarch with 2-3 tablespoons cold milk. Whisk into hot milk mixture and cook, whisking constantly, until thickened. (probably 2 to 3 minutes).

      If it’s not thick enough, add more cornstarch. Just dissolve it in cold milk before adding to the hot milk. Hope this helps!
