Pumpkin Spice Pudding
Ingredients
For the pudding
  • 1½ cups milk (2% or whole)
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup pumpkin purée
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • Pinch of salt
For serving
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar

Instructions
For the pudding
  • In a blender, blend together the milk, cream, pumpkin, sugar, cornstarch, spices, and salt until mixture is smooth. Pour the cream mixture into a medium saucepan. Heat cream mixture over medium heat, whisking occasionally, until steam rises. Continue cooking, whisking constantly, until mixture begins to thicken and coats the back of a spoon. Remove from heat. Pour pudding into dessert cups (about ½ cup per dessert cup) and refrigerate until completely set, 1-2 hours.
  • For serving
    • Whip the cream with the sugar until soft peaks form. Spoon whipped cream onto pudding. Sprinkle cookie crumbles over whipped cream and serve.
