"I discovered this recipe on a road trip to St. Louis," singer-songwriter Thom Shepherd tells Taste of Country of his delightful Pudding Shots recipe. "Some people at the festival I played at made these, and they were awesome! The next morning [songwriter] Wynn Varble and I spread some on a biscuit, as it looked like gravy. It was even good on biscuits!"
