Combine sugar, egg yolks, and salt in a 3-quart stainless steel saucier, then whisk in cookie crumbs, milk, and cream. Cook over medium-low heat for a few minutes, until warm to the touch. Increase heat to medium and cook, stirring and scraping constantly with a flexible spatula, until you can see steam rising from the custard and it registers 155°F (68°C) on an instant-read thermometer, about 8 minutes. Pour through a fine-mesh sieve into a large stainless steel bowl, pressing gently with a flexible spatula to release the liquid trapped in the crumbs, then stir in the vanilla.
