This recipe is my mom's. She got it when she was in college studying to be a Home Economist (which she has been for over 40 years now). We've tried different recipes over the years, but we ALWAYS come back to this one. The secret, I think, is the flavoring. The vanilla, butter & nut flavoring makes it out of this world rich. It's not for anyone counting calories and when adding the milk, I do use 2% instead of whole milk.
