Vanilla Pudding

It is so simple, and often overlooked.

But honestly, I love pudding.

Seriously!

Good, no, Great pudding is awesome!

I really only like the boxed stuff in recipes.

Just to make a dessert of boxed pudding isn't really appealing to me.

But make homemade pudding, count me in!

One reason why I like pudding is that most of the time I have the ingredients on hand.

Especially for vanilla pudding.

The ingredients are pure and simple.

If it's been awhile since you've had "great" pudding, try this soon!

I might just make a believer out of you!

Vanilla Pudding

2 1/2 cups milk, divided
pinch of salt
1/2 cup sugar
3 TBSP cornstarch
2 egg yolks, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla
1 TBSP butter

Place 2 cups milk and salt in a saucepan. Sprinkle sugar and pinch of salt on milk and do not stir; heat over medium-high. Quickly combine cornstarch with remaining 1/2  milk; add egg yolks and mix well. When milk comes to a full boil, remove saucepan from the heat and stir in cornstarch mixture. Pudding will begin to thicken. Return to the heat and cook for 1 minute, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla and butter until the butter is melted and well incorporated.  Pour into individual dishes. Serve warm, my favorite way to have homemade pudding.  Yield: 4 servings.
