    Default Accompaniments to Butterscotch Pudding?

    I've used the newspaper recipe to prepare Bradley Ogden's Butterscotch
    Pudding and it is divine. But I wonder whether there's a better way
    to present it than simply to spoon a dollop of whipped cream on top?
    Do you suppose some sort of wafer cookie might add a touch of elegance
    to what is, at heart, a simple comfort-food dessert? Ladyfingers?
    Madelaines? Any suggestions gratefully received -- we're having the
    boss & her husband over to dinner, and hoping to make a favorable
    impression.

    Thanks,
    Alice Parker

    I would think a wafer or gaufrette, definitely something crisp, so as to
    provide a contrast in texture as well as flavor.

    An oatmeal tuile? Maybe with the edge dipped in bittersweet
    chocolate...mmmm (If you don't want to do it yourself I think Pepperidge
    Farm has something similar)

    I've never used butterscotch chips before. Are they real butterscotch
    flavor or imitation? I've tasted them in cookies I didn't bake and didn't
    care for the flavor. If they're imitation, I'd rather stick with my
    totally homemade butterscotch pie filling that can be used as a pudding.

    Having said that, I already suggested crisp wafers or gaufrettes. Tuiles
    would be great, too. Anything crisp which will contribute a light and
    different texture.

    I think strong coffee will be fine. Butterscotch pudding is sweet
    enough, any more accompanying sweetness will rot your teeth.

    There you go again, assuming people have teeth! (Or at least the type that
    rot.)

    Thanks, Alice. I've copied down the Mercury News recipe because any pudd
    that starts with 4 cups of heavy cream is worth noting. Someday I may even
    have the nerve to make it.
