This is a recipe that has been past down from my great grandmother. It is a spanish dessert. the Spaniards brought this yummy pudding from Spain and introduced it to the Native Americans. I have never found this dessert in any restaurants out side New Mexico.
Natillas is a custard dish typically made with milk, sugar, vanilla, eggs, and cinnamon.
