      1/4  c             Unsalted butter
    7      ts            Medium dry sherry
   10      ts            Brandy
    1 1/2  c             Heavy cream
      1/4  t             Nutmeg

     Into a large kettle of vigorously boiling salted   water, plunge the
  lobsters, head first, and boil them,	 covered, for 8 minutes from the 
 time the water returns   to a boil.  Transfer lobsters to a cutting board and  
  allow them to cool.  Break off claws at the body, and   crack them. 
 Remove claw meat and cut it into 1/2-inch   pieces.  Halve the lobsters 
 lengthwise along the   undersides and remove meat from the tails. Cut into   
 1/2-inch pieces. In a heavy saucepan, cook the lobster	 meat in the butter over
moderate heat, stirring   occasionally, for 2 minutes. Add 6 teas. 
 Sherry and 3   Tbsp brandy, and cook the mixture, stirring for 2   minutes.
Transfer lobster meat to a bowl. Add the   cream to the Sherry mixture 
 and boil until it is   reduced to about 1 cup. Reduce heat to low and stir in 
     the remaining Sherry and brandy, nutmeg, cayenne, and   salt to taste. Whisk
  in the yolks. Cook the mixture,   whisking constantly, until it registers 140f
  on a	 cooking thermometer.  Cook, whisking, for 3 more   minutes. Stir in
  lobster meat and serve over the toast   points. A 1965 Gourmet Mag. favorite
