Never Fail Nut Pudding

Sheila Kremer


It wouldn't be a holiday meal without my grandma's Nut Pudding. She made this every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas, and since she passed away on Thanksgiving Day in 1984, I've continued the tradition of making it. The photo is taken of the pudding in one of grandma's bowls. Hope you all enjoy this as much as we do! Please note that prep time includes cooling time.
