Total Time

Prep: 15 min. + chilling

Makes

For a light and lovely “something sweet” to cap off your meal, try this creamy dessert from Katie Anderson in Spokane, Washington. “To make it look extra-special, I sometimes sprinkle with cinnamon, nutmeg or a few sliced berries,” Katie says. TIP: Tapioca will keep indefinitely if it’s stored airtight in a cool dry place.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon quick-cooking tapioca
  • 1 large egg yolk, beaten
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  1. In a saucepan, combine the milk, sugar, tapioca, egg yolk and salt; let stand for 5 minutes. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture comes to a full boil. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla. Cool slightly. Spoon into serving dishes. Cover and refrigerate until chilled.
