~ Luscious Lemon Pudding ~

Cassie *


I grew up eating my grams lemon pie, but to be honest I actually like to eat a warm bowl of just the pudding. I'm not a big meringue lover, so this is how I prefer it, with just a dollop of whipped cream. This recipe is enough for a pie though, should you prefer that.
To me a bowl of warm lemon pudding is comfort food! Yum! Gram would make me lemon pudding just like this for any special occasion I asked. I would eat the whole pan full...not all at one of course...LOL
