A creamy tapioca pudding with a lightly sweetened taste. Large pearl tapioca must be soaked overnight and drained well. I purchased the large pearl from Nuts.com since it can be difficult to find in your grocery store.
Put tapioca in a large bowl. Cover with 1 quart of water and soak overnight. In the morning, drain water completely.
Put the tapioca into a large saucepan, approximately 3 quart size and cover with the 6 cups of milk. Add sweetened and condensed milk, nutmeg, eggs and salt. Put on medium heat and bring to a boil, stirring constantly—a wire beater works great. Once it boils turn the heat down to a simmer and simmer for 5 minutes. Pudding will get thick and creamy. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla.
Cover with Saran Wrap or a lid and refrigerate until chilled.
I prefer it warm. I place the warm pudding in individual glass dessert dishes and add a dollop of whipped cream, or heat slightly taking it directly from the refrigerator.
This dish is so easy to make and, in comparison to its traditional cousin, can be made as low fat as you desire (using fat free Cool Whip and sugar free pudding mix). The molasses cookies add a spiciness not often found in a traditional pie crust. If you don’t like the flavor of molasses, you could always substitute ginger snaps, but the soft molasses cookies are a delicious addition.
