I love pumpkin pie pudding, which is exactly what it sounds like— pudding that tastes like pumpkin pie. No surprises here. Except how easy this is to make.
This easy pumpkin pie pudding is also perfect for a party or gathering. You’re going to love this recipe!
Easiest Pumpkin Pie Pudding, serves 5-6.
1 box vanilla pudding mix (and any additional ingredients needed, like milk)
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/8 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
2-3 cups whipped cream (fresh or cool whip)
2 cups ground up ginger snap cookies
First, make the pudding according to the box directions. After cooking, whisk in the pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice until well combined. Refrigerate until cold.
While you wait for the pudding to cool, you can make the whipped cream (or use store bought, either way) and grind up the ginger snap cookies. The fastest way to grind up the cookies is in a food processor, but a good blender would probably work pretty well too.
Once the pudding is cold, layer everything into cups. Put the ground ginger snap cookies first, then pudding, then more cookies, more pudding, then the whipped cream on top. You can garnish with a cinnamon stick if you’re really fancy.
You can make the pudding a day or two ahead of time and assemble before serving if you’re making these for friends. Or, eat them all yourself over the course of two or three days. I won’t judge! xo. Emma

This sounds brilliant. I love love love pudding.
I love pudding, and have never made homemade pudding. But, this makes me want to rush to the kitchen, because pumpkin is one of my favorite flavors!
This looks so delicious! I’m not a huge fan of pumpkin, but I still think I’d enjoy this!

It’s the second time I wanna try a pumpkin based recipe of yours and i see you’re using pumpkin puree but we don’t have that here in France so i wanted to ask you if you could tell me how to make it from a pumpkin? What should i add?
Thanks a lot!!
Glad it is pumpkin season. I am ready for fall.
This sounds SO good! Man, I love pumpkin season! 🙂
Looks so yummy! x
Hi Leslie! Check the front of the box for the amount of servings. You can buy two small boxes if needed, or just make a smaller amount with one box 🙂 -Jacki
How should I adjust the recipe if I cannot find a large-sized box of Jello pudding?
What a perfect family treat! This goes on the weekend list!

you can make your own with cinnamon, nutmeg, ground ginger and allspice or cloves! there are recipes online.
Ahhhh! I love pumpkin pie! This sounds so incredibly tasty, that I just have to try it! Thank you for posting.
The Internet is International but your recipe is not. Brand names like “Jello” are not available in other countries, neither is “pumpkin pie spice” nor gingersnap cookies (or even pumpkin puree in a can). That does not mean that people outside the US cannot make good things to eat, but you must give us generic names for things instead of brand names.
