If you think you don't like Buttterscotch Pudding..... you might be dead wrong. At least I was. I was about as excited to make butterscotch pudding this week as I am for my monthly credit card bill. But I was dead wrong. (Not about the bill; oh, mama.) Leave it to Dorie Greenspan to make a butterscotchy believer out of me. This decadent pudding is warm and buttery, with brown sugar and caramel undertones and a luscious creamy texture. Take it from me and plan to serve this one in front of the fire place-warm, with a dollop of whipped cream and sugared pecans. Here's your link to silky-warm-you -to-your-toes goodness. It's so yummy it'll make you forget all about that credit card bill that I mentioned earlier. Forget I mentioned it. For my fellow penny-pinchers, the estimated cost is $2.00 for a half batch, if you make it my way, which is scotch-less. I also didn't use a food processor, like Dorie recommends. Lazy dishwasher me. The wire whisk works wonders. How's that alliteration for you?

And in the meantime, I've been baking loads of chocolate chip cookies and then popping those Nestle swirly chips on the top when they just come out of the oven. Colored M and Ms work well, too.They're the best for parties that include kids of all ages, from one to ninety-two. Speaking of ninety-two, that's about how many I almost ate. And I betcha Santa Claus might like his own little set of ninety-two tomorrow night.
This just in: Hey! Head over to Fine Blogs to see my guest post about a super easy (and cheap and yummy) Christmas Breakfast.
