My husband and I visited my brother in Provo, UT and we went to a cool little restaurant called Communal. Basically, a trendy place that serves food made with local ingredients. All of the food was great, but what I loved the most was the butterscotch pudding. Mmm, it was way too rich and between four people we could barely finish it, but it was SO good. There was a cookie crust at the bottom and whipped cream on the top and the pudding was a little runnier than your average pudding. Interesting, but it worked.
Some days, I suddenly think about that pudding and start craving it. Really, it’s too rich for an average day, but if you’re feeling extra blue or you want something extra sweet, this will be just what you need.
I put it in a mason jar because that’s what it was served in at the restaurant. A mason jar’s worth is definitely not one serving. It’s probably closer to 3, but my husband and I finished it off pretty easily. But the amount in the recipe makes for an awkward 1.5 mason jars worth. So either double the recipe or put them in smaller containers. The cool, whipped cream topping really balances out the richness of the pudding, and the graham cracker base… I mean, who doesn’t love a graham cracker crust? It all comes together beautifully. A rich delicious sweet treat.
