Pudding is a special dessert that combines fruit and smooth, thick custard for a sweet and creamy flavor on the palette. Strawberries add a bit of tang to this strawberry pudding that would be a great way to complete a dinner on hot summer’s night.
This recipe employs the convenience of vanilla wafers to speed up the sometimes tedious thickening of a pudding. The cookies also provide a lovely firm base to the rest of the custard. Custard is made by taking milk, eggs, and sugar then heating it to thicken the whole thing. It can be flavored in many different ways, anywhere from tangy lemon to rich chocolate, and is a rich and wonderful dish on its own. It can also be served warm or cold and with additional sauces or garnishes. A cold pudding with whipped cream is a fabulous dessert. And when you make it from scratch it can really impress your family and friends. This recipe is made from scratch with just a bit of help for texture and shape from the cookies.
As always with Southern cooking, mounds of fresh fruit complete this dish. You could use almost any single fruit or a fruit in combination. This recipe draws on fresh cut strawberries to finish the dessert. The tang of strawberries will nicely complement the rich flavor of the custard and the firm flesh of the berries will act as a great texture foil to the creamy smoothness of the custard. In all this will be a delicious dessert or snack to serve your friends and family. A custard made from scratch is always much better in flavor than anything out of a package. This recipe offers a great basic recipe with just the right balance of ingredients to show you how to make a great dessert from simple ingredients. Why not enjoy it tonight?
