Cornstarch Pudding

1/3 cup cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sugar
4 cups milk
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix cornstarch, salt and sugar, and blend until smooth with 1 cup of the milk. Scald rest of milk, add the cornstarch mixture, and stir constantly over direct heat until it boils and thickens. Place over boiling water, cover and cook 10 minutes longer, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, stir in butter and vanilla, and pour into large bowl or individual molds (such as custard cups) to cool.. Unmold and serve with any desired sauce or with preserves or fresh fruit, such as crushed sugared strawberries and cream. The Modern Family Cookbook
My Notes: Mmmmm what an appealling name. Hey mom, can we have cornstarch pudding for dessert? And can you imagine what it looks like unmolded?
