This is a nice dessert for the family or for a dinner party. Light and fresh!
- 3 tbsp. tapioca*
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 2 3/4 cups of milk
- 1 egg, beaten
- 3 tsp. vanilla
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 tbsp. confectioners sugar
- 4 strawberries
Combine the sugar, tapioca,milk and egg in a saucepan and let sit for 5 minutes.
Stir while cooking on medium heat until the mixture boils. Take off the heat and stir in 2 tsp. of vanilla. I thought it would be fun to put the pudding into margarita glasses for a great presentation. Pour into 4 glasses or small bowls.
For the whipped cream, put one cup of heavy cream into a bowl. Add 1 tbsp. of confectioners sugar (more if you like it sweeter) and 1 tsp of vanilla. Beat with a hand mixer until it forms soft peaks.
Put a dollop of cream onto the pudding and garnish glass or bowl with a strawberry. Serves 4.
