Silky Butterscotch Pudding
This pudding is naturally Gluten Free!
I think our whole family loves butterscotch whether it’s in
little clear butterscotch candies which really helps with dry mouths. I always have some at choir practice, and in my concert folder, (of course the trick is to keep it lodged in the side of your mouth all the while singing and not swallow it whole or choke!)
Butterscotch really doesn’t have anything to do with being Scottish. Food historians have several theories regarding the name and origin of this confectionery, but none are conclusive. One explanation is the meaning "to cut or score" for the word "scotch", as the confection must be cut into pieces, or "scotched", before hardening when making candy or confections.
The fragrance of the butter and brown sugar is intoxicating, then adding the vanilla cream is enough to make us want to just get a great big straw and slurp it all up. It really defies any worthwhile description.
This recipe can be used for individual ramekin puddings, one large bowl, or is perfect for pies and tarts.
