Yummy comfort food! I like it chilled but it can be served warm as well.

This taste like the butterscotch pudding from jello. Pretty good stuff, not to sweet to eat. Just right. I didn't like the cooking of the sugar - it made a mess, and took forever. I just ended up stiring it and letting it brown. but it turned out great. Aggie

  1. In a bowl, whisk 1/2 cup milk, cornstarch, and egg until well blended.
  2. In a 2-3 quart pan over medium-high heat, tilt and swirl sugar until melted and deep amber, about 4 minutes; stir in remaining 1 1/2 cups milk; mixture will bubble and sugar will harden; stir until sugar melts again, about 2 minutes.
  3. Whisk about 1/2 cup of the caramelized sugar mixture into cornstarch mixture, then return all to the pan.
  4. Stir over medium-high heat until pudding thickens and begins to bubble, 3-5 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
  6. Pour into bowls and serve warm, or let it cool and chill in an airtight container for up to 2 days and serve cold.
