Vanilla Almond Pudding

Homemade pudding is so incredibly delicious! I make plain vanilla pudding all the time for a quick and easy dessert. Tonight I tried adding a touch of almond to the pudding and it turned out great! I always ration out pudding into cute little bowls for the kids to eat, while my husband and I sneak into the kitchen and dig into the rest straight from the pan! It’s that good.

 

2 cups of milk

1/2 cup of sugar

3 T. cornstarch

pinch of salt

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1/2 tsp. almond extract

crushed almonds (optional)

In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, whisk together the sugar and cornstarch. While continuing to whisk, add in the milk. Keep whisking until it starts to bubble, then turn down the heat and add in the salt, vanilla and almond extract. Yes, keep whisking for a couple more minutes until the pudding has thickened to coat the back of a spoon. Remove from the heat and let it cool a bit before serving. It is best served chilled in the fridge, but who can wait that long? Not me!

Finger lickin’ good!
