This is a GREAT recipe even the kids can make it! I have not received a single complaint about it; in fact. I have had several people ask for the recipe. I did make one slight adjustment to the recipe though. I have discovered that if I add 2 teaspoons of another flavoring like orange with the 1 teaspoon of vanilla we get "gourmet" pudding with a variety of flavors just choose your favorite! You have provided us with a new family traditional dessert for the holidays thank you!
