Pumpkin Pie Pudding

Pumpkin Pie Pudding

I love pudding! Even when I make chocolate or vanilla, I like to eat some before it cools off. This is even better with Pumpkin Pudding with whipped topping and cinnamon. Just like eating a bowl of pumpkin pie cold.

1 cup sweetener (sugar, honey or brown sugar for a stronger flavor)PumpkinPudding

3 Tbs Cornstarch

1/4 tsp Salt

2 cups of Milk

4 Egg Yolks

2 Tbs unsalted Butter

1 cup Pumpkin Puree

1/2 tsp Pumpkin spices (1/4 tsp cinnamon, 1/8 tsp ginger and 1/8 tsp nutmeg)

Directions~ Whisk eggs and set them aside. In a saucepan, combine sweetener, cornstarch and salt with milk. Keep stirring often not to scorch the milk. Stir over medium-high heat until thick (be patient). Stir while boiling for 2 more minutes and remove from heat. (pic #1)

Temper the eggs by slowly adding 1 cup of the warm milk mixture into the bowl of eggs while whisking.(pic #2) Pour the egg mixture back into the saucepan, boil for 2 more minutes while whisking together. Remove from heat.

Stir in pumpkin puree, butter and spices. Pour into a bowl and cover with plastic wrap to prevent a skin from forming.(pic #3) Refrigerate about 3 hours minimum.

Serve with whipped cream and cinnamon dusted on top.(pic #4)


Fall is in the Air


Yesterday we went out and bought a baby pumpkin so we could start making pumpkin recipes. Because, well, that is what we do in the fall. Everything pumpkin and apple, and warm and cozy.

Some of the recipes we already enjoy with pumpkin include Pumpkin Pie, Pumpkin French Toast, Pumpkin Swirl Cheesecake and Pumpkin Cookies.

This year we would love to add to the recipes we already enjoy with pumpkins and apples by adding Caramel-Apple Walnut Cheesecake, Pumpkin Spice Cake, Pumpkin Soup, Pumpkin Granola, Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins, Pumpkin Bread, Pumpkin Swirl Brownies and Pumpkin Pie Pudding…Pumpkin Ice Cream (we are in Florida after all).

All recipes coming soon! Yum!

Our friend Kristin at Live Simply has just posted a super easy Pumpkin Puree recipe up on her website. Check it out.
