Butterscotch Pudding in a Jar

February 23, 2012

Butterscotch pudding in a jar from Mississippi Kitchen  is a homey dessert that the whole family will love.  Brown sugar is mixed with butter and milk until smooth.  Eggs and cornstarch are added to thicken the mixture and turn it into pudding.  To have a silky smooth texture, strain the pudding to get out any remaining lumps.  Spoon your homemade butterscotch pudding into jam jars and let cool.  Serve this dessert with a dollop of whipped cream.


2 1/4 cups whole, 2 percent fat, or 1 percent fat milk

3/4 cups light brown sugar, packed
