1 cup sugar
5 tablespoons cornstarch, diluted in 1/4 cup water

Combine the milk and sugar in a heavy bottom pot and bring the mixture to a boil.
Stir in the cornstarch and water mixture. Reduce to medium heat.

Stir in the orange blossom water and Cointreau.
Ladle into small bowls, glasses, or ramekins. Cool the pudding and then refrigerate until cold.
Garnish with chopped walnuts and orange marmalade before serving. Pistachios and hazelnuts also work well with the orange flavor.
