Pumpkin Pie Pudding

Excuse the numerous amounts of pumpkin recipes that may be posted over the next week- I’m kind of obsessed!
Let me first start off by saying, I am addicted to Pinterest and it has only worsened my obsession with pumpkin flavored things. I have been pinning like mad the last few days, and most of my pins have been fall recipes. The first pumpkin recipe I decided to try on there was the simplest one- pumpkin pie pudding.
The pin originated from Very Best Baking, but I modified it a little.
The original recipes is as follows:
You take one package of 5 1/10oz vanilla pudding and blend it with 1 can of 12oz evaporated milk. I only had a smaller package of pudding, but I went ahead and mixed it with the full can or evaporated milk and it turned out just fine. Then you refrigerate for 5 minutes- I went a little longer, because I have a baby and had to change a diaper and entertain him for a little while.
Next, you add a full can of pumpkin and a tsp of pumpkin pie spice. I added probably 3/4 or so of the can of pumpkin, since I had less pudding. Then, I realized I was out of pumpkin pie spice. Thankfully I had the ingredients for my own. I looked at a bunch of different recipes for it, so I don’t remember where this one came from, but I also modified it a little.

Pumpkin Pie Spice
1 tbls cinnamon
2tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp nutmeg

For that I added a little more cinnamon and a little less nutmeg. I also put more than a tsp in the whole batch, I liked it a little spicier I guess. The original recipe was just called Quick Pumpkin Pudding, but I changed it to Pumpkin Pie Pudding, because that’s exactly what it tasted like. It tasted like you were eating the pie without the crust- so pretty darn good. My hubbs couldn’t get enough!

Overall the flavor was good, but I couldn’t eat a ton because it felt like I was eating 3 pieces of pie. However, it did leave me wanting something to replace that crust flavor. I think next time I make it I’ll be eating it with some graham crackers- or maybe cinnamon ones.

Since it’s a pretty self-explanatory recipe, I didn’t take pics of the process, but here’s a few of the final product.

Mine! Had to have a pumpkin marshmallow on top, because my house is filled with pumpkin flavored everything!

    […] tasted more of the cake mix than the pumpkin. If I make these again, I will definitely add some pumpkin pie spice, which you can find the recipe for in that earlier post. I also would smooth them out a little, […]
