Celery Seed Potato Salad

A fresh-tasting potato salad seasoned with onion and celery seed. The mayonnaise dressing gets its sweetness from sugar and whipping cream, and its tang from mustard and sugar.

6 medium red potatoes
4 hard-cooked eggs, diced
2 celery ribs, finely chopped
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon celery seed
6 tablespoons granulated (white) sugar

1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons white vinegar
1/2 cup mayonnaise
4 1/2 teaspoons butter

In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and mustard. Stir in cream, egg and vinegar until smooth. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture coats the back of a metal spoon. Cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes longer or until thickened.
