Nest a medium mixing bowl in larger bowl filled with ice water; set aside. In another mixing bowl whisk together 2 eggs, 2 egg yolks, and 1/4 cup granulated sugar; set aside. In small saucepan heat 1 cup whole milk over medium-high heat to simmer. Temper egg mixture by slowly pouring 1/4 cup hot milk into egg mixture, whisking constantly. Add another 1/4 cup hot milk, whisking constantly. Now whisk tempered egg mixture back into saucepan with milk, whisking constantly. Stir constantly with wooden spoon over medium heat until mixture reaches 175°F when tested with instant-read thermometer or until mixture just coats back of wooden spoon. Remove from heat; immediately transfer to bowl in ice bath and stir to stop cooking. Stir occasionally until cool. Pass mixture through fine mesh strainer. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice and 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract. Refrigerate until ready to serve, or up to 3 days.
