Mrs. Trumans Famous Ozark Pudding

History of Ozark Pudding from Wikipedia:

Ozark pudding is a dry fruit custard with nuts that, as the name implies, seems to originate in Missouri, being named after The Ozarks region.

It is most famous for being a favorite food of President Harry Truman, a recipe by his wife Bess Truman having been widely published in the 1950s, including it being her contribution to the Congressional Club Cookbook.
