Perfect! Just how I remembered it. I grew up having this!!! I knew I wanted to use a recipe that didn't use a pudding mix. Thanks!

I made this for company and everyone at the table said it was the best they had ever had. I was out of milk so used 1/2 and 1/2...of course that made it very rich. I also used meringue as a topping. I will definitely use this recipe again...with 1/2 and 1/2!
