OUR FAMILY'S ALL TIME FAVORITE; this is a true Southern Pudding it has been in the family as long as I am old. . .
"This is from Scratch". Out of my recipe file box of favorites that I use often. you can make variations to this for Coconut or just plain Vanilla Pudding.

You can cheat . . (but I didn't say that) and use Vanilla Cooked pudding mix in the same way for a simple version of this favorite.
