2 cups milk

Pour into serving dishes. Chill before serving.

This was a fast easy recipe! Smooth, creamy texture with great flavor.

I'm probably a little weird in that vanilla pudding is my favorite flavor. This recipe has really good flavor and smooth texture. The hardest part is waiting for it to cool before eating it!

I made this today for my kids. I substituted 1 tsp vanilla bean paste for the vanilla extract. It was soooo good! Really good vanilla flavor. This one's going in my recipe box.

I also doubled the recipe to use for banana pudding. It turned out great! At first, I questioned whether the addtl 1 minute to cook was long enough, as it didn't appear to be quite thick enough, however it thickened up as it sat (I placed in the fridge immediately after pouring over top of my vanilla wafers & bananas in 9x13 pan). It turned out yummy and will definitely make again!

I cooked a single batch in less than 15 min! It was soooo yummy! Not too sweet either.

How long do you have to cook it? I have been cooking it for almost 45 minutes now, not letting it boil, and it's still really thin- not thickening up at all. I am fairly patient but stirring constantly for almost an hour is a little too much for me...
