Butterscotch Pudding with Maple Whipped Cream

Butterscotch Pudding with Maple Whipped Cream is fall comfort food at its best.

It seems to me that it is time for homemade pudding to get the credit that it is due. We have already fallen in love with mini desserts, cupcakes and pie. Now I think it’s time for scratch-made pudding to get some love. It’s rich, creamy and so incredibly comforting. My Butterscotch Pudding with Maple Whipped Cream is simple to make, but is elegant enough for the fanciest of fall get-togethers. The warm flavor of butterscotch and a hint of whiskey are welcome fall flavors that I crave year round.
