Pumpkin Pie Pudding

Pumpkin pie pudding (click through for recipe)I made pumpkin pie pudding as much for the flavor as for the alliteration. I’m a kitchen poet.

Which is the lamest kind of poet you could ever aspire to be.

But this isn’t about me. It’s about 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.

Pumpkin pie puddingCan you stir? Good. You have all the skills you’re gonna need to make this then. And it’s a good one too. You’re gonna want to make this for friends. Don’t tell them it’s really easy. Lie to your friends.

I’m just kidding. Don’t lie to your friends. That’s not friendly.

Easiest ever pumpkin puddingPumpkin 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. Follow the box directions. After cooking, whisk in the pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice until well combined. Refrigerate until cold.

Easy pumpkin puddingWhile you wait for the pudding to cool off, 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. 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.

Pumpkin pie pudding 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. Live your life. xo. Emma

  • 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!

  • 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?

  • This looks SO yummy! And my boyfriend accidentally ordered a dozen HUGE cans of pumpkin, so I’ll put them to good use!

  • Yummy yum!! Definitely making this for my next gathering. And no one will no better. 😉

  • 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.

  • I think a kitchen poet is the BEST kind of poet you can be. Any poetry involving delicious food is good in my book!

    PS – So fun meeting you in Nashville!

  • I just can’t get over how much I love Emma’s writing style. Everyone who writes for ABM is charming, but Emma is just hilarity. I laugh out loud every time I read one of her posts, and I can always tell immediately when it’s one of hers (okay, so if they’re posts about food it’s a pretty solid guess anyway, but still!). Another clever idea, another delightful read. Well played food poet Emma! Way to live your life.

  • I need to try this!!! Ngyaaaaa!!! I’m gonna do this for my bookers on halloween… or maybe I make it for myself! Or both!!
