DIRECTIONS

  • Combine cornstarch and water in a small cup and stir well.
  • Add milk to a soup pan or dutch oven pot.
  • Stir in cornstarch mixture in milk before it gets warm.
  • Add in vanilla and sugar.
  • Must stir constantly until it comes to a boil.
  • Let boil for 2 minutes, meanwhile still stirring.
  • Serve in dessert bowls.
  • Top with cinnamon and coconut or just chopped pistachios.
  • It's traditionally eaten hot, but I like it cold too, once it cooled off and firmed up.
  • Enjoy!
