Butterscotch Pudding Confessions


Last week, The Pioneer Woman posted a recipe for Butterscotch Pudding.  I don’t know why I read that post and was compelled to act.  I rarely read full posts from her anymore and I never put pudding on our grocery list.  But apparently it spoke to my soul on some level.  So I made pudding and that was good and Marcus was sort of confused because it was like 8:00 PM and I was whisking away.  I had never made from-scratch pudding before so that was a mildly exciting challenge in the way that combining six ingredients can be and I was proud of myself.

Related/unrelated: the pudding tasted like manna from the heavens even though I am positive that by all other standards, it was mediocre at best.  I think I may have scalded the milk a bit.  (oops)

Anyway, yesterday I was once again compelled to Make Pudding and as you all know, I was quick to heed that call.  I actually had to run to the store to buy more milk and more cornstarch but it didn’t really matter because pudding was on the way.  This time, I used a pot instead of a pan and the result was even more delightful, if that is possible.  Would it be even better if I were to use whole milk/heavy cream?  Most assuredly yes, but the only thing we ever have in the house is some version of low-fat.  This is something to aspire to for next time.
