TWD - Real Butterscotch Pudding

This post is going to be very short and very sweet. Short in that I have very few words to say about this fabulous Butterscotch Pudding. A few of them I said with my mouth full, rolling my eyes to the back of my head wondering why I haven't made this pudding before. And very sweet (and rich I could add) as in brown sugar, eggs, heavy cream, more sugar and, oh, yes, Scotch Whiskey! Seriously, when Dorie says this is the real deal, she is not kidding. I want to specify that I did not use a food processor for this recipe. I whizzed it with my immersion blender but, really, I mean you could just sieve it before you pour it into ramekins/glasses/other vessel of your choice. It's PUDDING, for pete's sake.

I want to thank Donna of Spatulas, Corkscrews and Suitcases for a great pick this week. A very comforting and easy dessert, just when I needed it. Please visit her blog for the recipe. Don't forget to check out a few of the wonderful bakers who also participate in Tuesdays with Dorie every week! And may your Holidays be as sweet and comforting as this pudding! :)

Yes. Super tasty wasn't it? I dig the whipped cream idea.

Donna said...

So glad you loved the pudding. As I was reading the comments in the forum, I got a little worried that no one liked Butterscotch Pudding. WHAT? Not like it? It's one of the most heart-warming comfort foods this side of macaroni and cheese!

You did a great job!

Have a wonderful holiday!

I love that you put your pudding in pretty glasses! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas! See you in the new year!!!!

PheMom said...

I love the beautiful creamy shade of, well, butterscotch, color your pudding turned out. Very lovely in those tall glasses. I didn't use the food processor much either because I don't have one that is big enough, but it turned out great anyway.

Merry Christmas to you and your family!!

Your pudding turned out perfect.

Your pudding is so so pretty - love the topping. We really liked it also (will post on Tuesday; I cooked the cheesecake for this week's post) and made part with and part without the scotch; part with a whisk at the end and part with the food processor. The food processor pudding was silkier, but they were both really good.

Love all your cookies below also.
