Boil potatoes in a large pot filled with enough water to cover. Cook for about 20 minutes, or until fork-tender. Drain, and set aside to cool.
While potatoes are cooking, hand beat 2 eggs, sugar, cornstarch, and salt together in a saucepan. Stir in vinegar, milk, and mustard. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until thickened, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in butter. Refrigerate until cool, and then stir in the mayonnaise.
Cut cooked potatoes into a medium dice. Place in large bowl. Combine with onion, celery, carrots, celery seed and hard-cooked eggs. Gently fold in the dressing. Refrigerate before serving to let the flavors blend. Serve chilled.The Homestyle Amish Kitchen Cookbook: Plainly Delicious Recipes from the Simple Life
