Cookie Caramel Pudding!
One of the most common portuguese desserts is Pudim de Caramelo and I can tell you right now that every portuguese housewive has at least one or two versions of this recipe.
This is a different take on the pudding, it's perfect for those days when you need a great dessert but don't want something elaborate.
10 Maria cookies or you could use Vanilla Wafers too
2 cups of milk
10 teaspoons sugar
For the caramel:
1 cup of sugar
Place the sugar in a small pot on medium heat and cook until you get a brown colored syrup. Pour into a fluted pan and set aside.
Mix the remaining ingredients in a blender and pour over the caramel in the fluted pan.
Bake at 350º in a water bath for about 40 minutes. Let cool down completely and then unmold onto a serving dish.
Place in refrigerator and serve cold.
