Ozark pudding comes from - you guessed it - the Ozarks region in Missouri, and it’s a delicious dry fruit custard with nuts that is absolutely perfect for chilly fall weather.
This Ozark Apple Pudding brings in my favorite fall fruit, apples, for a yummy, crumbly dessert that tastes great with ice cream. Bake this up for thanksgiving and the whole family will be in love!
