Real Butterscotch Pudding
For this week's Tuesdays with Dorie selection, Donna of Spatulas, Corkscrews & Suitcases chose Real Butterscotch Pudding on page 386 of Dorie's book, Baking: From My Home to Yours.
I made 1/2 the recipe, omitted the scotch, and doubled the vanilla.
I made it by hand with lots of whisking, and it was pretty easy. Dorie suggests using a food processor but a few people had difficulties with this technique in our last pudding adventure. I double sifted the cornstarch and salt before adding it to the egg mixture to make sure it was smooth.
And the best news this week? Santa came to visit my librarian friend, Shannon and her husband Mike! Introducing Katherine Louise! She arrived December 21 and weighed almost 9 pounds!
Happy Hanukkah! Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays! May you have a wonderful time with your friends and family this holiday season.
