Butterscotch Pudding




Butterscotch pudding was a favorite dessert of mine when I was a little girl. My mother loved making dessert for us, and pudding was something she made at least once a week.

This pudding isn't quite as good as what I remember from all those ago, but it is pretty delicious.
A little whipped cream and a dash of nutmeg are the perfect finish.

Ingredients:

1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
3 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 egg yolks, beaten
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Directions:

In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Add enough milk to make thick paste.
In a saucepan over medium heat, bring milk to a boil. Stir in brown sugar mixture, return to a boil, and cook for 1 minute.
Place yolks in small bowl. Temper the yolks by quickly stirring in about 1/4 of hot milk mixture.
Pour yolk mixture back into hot milk mixture, and return to heat. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute; remove from heat.
Stir in butter and vanilla until butter is melted. Pour into bowls and chill.

Makes 4 servings.
