Gabrielle & Alexa Phillips


1 pound Goodman’s wide noodles

Mixture #1
½ pound cottage cheese
½ pound cream cheese
½ pound farmer cheese
2 cups milk
6 tbsp. melted butter

Mixture #2
1 tsp. salt
6 eggs beaten with mixer
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup sour cream

¾ cup brown sugar
½ cup melted butter
½ cup sliced almonds

Boil the noodles 7 minutes, rinse and drain.
Mix the cheeses, milk and butter together (Mixture #1).
Mix the salt, eggs, sugar, vanilla and sour cream together (Mixture #2).
Mix #2 and #3 mixtures together.
Grease a 9X13” pan.
Pour the noodles in the pan.
Pour the mixture over the noodles and blend.
Bake for ½ hour at 350 degrees.
Prepare the topping just before the half hour is up, and pour over the noodles after the pudding bakes for the half hour. (Don’t do this too far in advance, or the topping will congeal.)
Bake for one hour more. If the pudding gets too brown, lay a sheet of tin foil over the top.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This noodle pudding is one our favorite dishes in the world! It is a dish we look forward to at every family gathering. Our mother discovered the recipe before we were even born, in a cookbook, similar to this one, where everyone donates a recipe. She adopted this recipe as her own and the Phillips family has been enjoying it ever since. Sometimes we’ll get lucky and she’ll even make it for our birthdays! This pudding is a sweet treat that can be enjoyed with a meal, as a dessert, or even by itself. But, whenever we eat or make this dish, we are always reminded of our family and the celebrations we’ve shared together.

Katie, we hope one day, like our mother, you adopt this recipe as your own and share it with your family during holidays and special events. We wish you and Davey a lifetime of happy celebrations (and noodle pudding!).
