Grandma's Pudding Pies

Linda Smith


When I was a little girl my grandmother made all of her puddings this way. Sometimes she added bananas sometimes she added chocolate just depended on what kind of pie she was making. I have been making this ever since I was young it's the way I was taught and it's the way I do it now never use a box.
