Grandma Lee's Paradise pudding

Gail Herbest


I found this recipe in my grandmothers little notebook. she passed away in 1960's and the recipes are dated in the 1940, so its an old one for sure, I had no Idea what it would turn out like but thought I would give it a try.
I'm not sure why its called Pudding" it tastes a little like a s'more I may just have to add chocolate to it next time. I will write the directions as she has them written and then I will add the revisions I took.I thought it would be fun to share.

How to Make Grandma Lee's Paradise pudding


  • 1Roll 5 graham crackers and set aside to roll the pudding in.
  • 2Roll 20 graham crackers fine
  • 3add dates. marshmallow, and nut meats stir in the evaporated milk
  • 4Put the powdered 5 graham crackers on a board and lay the mixture on it-form a loaf
  • 5put wax paper in a loaf pan and place pudding in, patting all the crumbs in well. set away to let harden
    for best results make a day before
  • 6To serve lift from pan and cut into desired slices serve with whipped cream
  • 7I used mini marshmallows, and to sweeten the evaporated milk I used about 3T of sugar and a tsp of vanilla, I also ran a little short on graham crackers to roll the pudding in so crushed a few vanilla wafers, I am not sure where I was suppose to set it aside to harden, so I stuck mine in the refrigerator.

Fresh whipped cream is so much better than the stuff you buy in a tub or a can and so easy to make. We prefer to sweeten our whipped cream...
