I am lazy and don’t like to stir the pudding while it cooks, so I mix all but the eggs and put it in the microwave. Place a piece of was paper on top. When it starts to boil, I take it out and add the eggs as directed, then return it to the microwave for a few more minutes. Add butter and vanilla. Stir well or it will be lumpy.
This can be used to make coconut, pineapple or other cream pies. Do not add as much vanilla to these pies as you would to just a plain vanilla cream pie.
