real butterscotch pudding

Donna of Spatulas, Corkscrews & Suitcases chose Real Butterscotch Pudding for TWD.  Delightful, Donna– how did you know butterscotch is one of my favorite flavors (for candy, ice cream sauce, pudding, whatever)?!?  I love the brown sugar sweetness and the boozy kick (I used good ol’ JD here) of this old-fashioned treat.

Usually I just make half-batches of the TWD recipes, but butterscotch is worthy of full-batch treatment, I think!  I’ve made butterscotch tarts for you before, so this time I just went with my little old-school Pyrex cups.  I did go the extra mile, with whipping up cream and toasting some pecans in butter, brown sugar and a sprinkle of salt.  The sweet and salty crunch was perfect with the smooth pudding.  The only thing I’ll tweak with Dorie’s recipe next time will be to go half and half on light and dark brown sugar, just to boost the color a bit.

For the recipe, look in Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan.  You can find it on Spatulas, Corkscrews & Suitcases, too.  Don’t forget to check out the TWD Blogroll!

Happy holidays, everyone!!

    I wanted to put some sugar in my pecans, but decided not to.

  5. I agree this was not only worth a full batch its worth another make!! I love butterscotch anything!

  6. Wow…worthy of a whole batch? You must certainly like butterscotch. I am so used to seeing mini everything on your page! It looks perfectly dreamy & creamy!

  7. The pecans sound like they would be perfect with this one, well done!

  8. This was a great pudding!

  9. what a lovely dessert, the crunchies sound perfect!

  10. Ooh, the pecans sound yummy. I bet they were a great complement to the pudding. And I like your idea of dark brown sugar–the color could definitely be darker.

  15. Lovely! Looks way delicious! Happy holidays to you!!!

  16. I almost cut the recipe in half, and I’m so glad I didn’t! The nuts look like they were a great addition.

  17. I agree that the color needs boosting, but not the flavor. It was delicious. Yours look great with the pecans too.

  18. Oh, yeah, this was so worth the whole batch! I love the color of the background you used for the photo, it creates a great contrast.

  19. So glad you made the whole batch and liked it too!
    Too bad so many people opted out this time. Their loss!

    Have a wonderful holiday!
