Buttermilk Pudding

This is one of those desserts that's so simple to make you think you're making a box mix! It's my new favorite dessert and I can't get over how easy it is to dress it up with some sliced fruit. The bonus is my husband said he would pay $10 for a little one so maybe I should start drawing up a bill for him at the end of every meal. haha I'm not a buttermilk fan, but the flavor is really light in here, it's a silky dessert that melts in your mouth. Ok I'm gonna stop drooling and share the recipe now!!

1 1/4-ounce envelope unflavored gelatin
1 cup heavy cream
2/3 cup sugar
2 cups buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Canola oil for the ramekins

Combine the gelatin with 1/4 cup water in a small bowl or measuring cup and let stand for 3 minutes.

In a small saucepan, over medium heat, combine 1/2 cup of the cream and the sugar. Cook, stirring, until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and whisk in the gelatin.

In a large bowl, combine the buttermilk, vanilla, and the remaining cream. Stir in the warm cream mixture.

Lightly oil six 6-ounce ramekins. Divide the mixture evenly among the ramekins. (I used a mix off different containers I had to see what worked best. I liked the look of the dole fruit cups the best.) Refrigerate, covered, 3 hours or overnight. To serve, run a knife around the edge of each ramekin and invert onto plates.
