vanilla pudding

Posted: 05/31/2011 in recipes

oh how i love sharing my favorite things with you!

my new favorite thing is vanilla pudding…

3/4 cup of sugar

3 tbsp cornstarch

3 cups of half n half

4 beaten egg yolks

1 tbsp of butter

1.5 tsp of vanilla

in a medium heavy saucepan combine sugar, cornstarch. stir in half and half. cook and stir mixture over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. cook and stir for 2 minutes more. remove pan from heat. gradually stir 1 cup of milk mixture into egg yolks. add egg mixture to milk mixture in pan. bring milk mixture to a gentle boil; reduce heat. cook and stir for 2 minutes more.

remove pan from heat. stir in butter and vanilla. pour pudding into individual custard dishes or bowls. cover. refrigerate.

the recipe says 4 servings but i think it’s more like 6.

**i accidently used 3 measuring cups full of half n half thinking the cup was 1 cup but it was 3/4 cup. it tastes like store bought gross-for-you pudding with only 2.25 cups of half n half 🙂 YUMMY!

**this would be so good a top graham cracker crust with a fruit topping! we LOVE the chocolate pudding over graham cracker crust with whipped cream and chocolate pretties on top!

**see my fav chocolate pudding
