Mom’s Dessert

Our kids and grandkids come for Sunday Dinner most every week.. We were planning out the menu this week and my daughter asked me if I remembered the dessert I made when we lived on the farm. I had been looking through some of my old recipes and there it was.
I have made this dessert for years and it's a family favorite. Everyone will want the recipe. This is NOT just a normal pudding dessert!
It brings back so many memories of making it in my big country kitchen. It is a mouth-watering dessert I am sure you will make often.
