To use, stir the mix in the canister before measuring out 1/2 cup mix into a saucepan. Add 2 cups milk and cook over low heat, stirring, until mixture thickens and comes to a boil. Continue stirring for 1 minute, remove from heat, and pour into individual serving dishes. Pudding will thicken further as it cools.
For a richer pudding, cook as directed and, after taking pudding off heat, stir in 1 egg lightly beaten with 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract and 1 tablespoon sweet butter. Cover and let sit for a minute or two, uncover and stir, and then pour into the individual serving dishes.
