A couple weeks ago Kara left Cliff and me in charge of blogging because she had brunch plans for a friend’s birthday. This is trouble because I generally need Kara to keep me in check. Otherwise I get distracted by…say…the Olympics, a game of Scramble, The ads in the Sunday paper or even How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days playing on TV for the 500th time. Bennie boo boo…boo boo. Plus, I don’t always follow directions word for word. Needless to say, there was a good chance this day could go WAY wrong, especially with homemade pudding, something I had never made before! Luckily everything went smoothly with this recipe and the others we made that day. Shocker! The pudding in particular was a total success!When we first saw this pudding Kara and I both thought it looked delicious. What’s not to like about Cookie Dough Pudding? Nothing. I barely ever eat pudding so I kind of thought it might be hard to make, but it’s not hard at all. It took about 20 minutes from start to finish. Not bad. Homemade pudding is going to become a regular for me, can’t wait to experiment!
Here’s what you’ll need
Whisk together cornstarch , salt and brown sugar
Add milk and heavy cream and whisk over medium heat until mixture thickens
Whisk until smooth and thickened
Remove from heat and stir in remaining brown sugar, butter and vanilla
Cover with plastic wrap and chill until set
Sprinkle with mini chips and dig in!
