Bread pudding is simple to make!
It`s a classic dessert not just because it`s delicious, but because it`s baked with basic ingredients – milk, eggs, sugar, spice, bread and butter.
But we’ve added a twist to the classic by swapping out the bread for Ann’s White Chocolate Cranberry Biscuits! The sweetly-spiced custard soaks into Ann`s biscuits and makes a holiday dessert the entire family will love.
