This pumpkin spice pudding is a super easy fall inspired dessert that will be perfect on for your Halloween, Thanksgiving, or autumn dessert table.



For the pudding

  • 1 1/2 cups milk (2% or whole)
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup pumpkin purée
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • Pinch of salt

For serving

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • Crumbled amaretti Italian cookies or gingersnaps


For the pudding

  1. Mix. 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.
  2. Cook. 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.
  3. Chill. Pour pudding into dessert cups (about 1/2 cup per dessert cup) and refrigerate until completely set, 1-2 hours.

For serving

  1. Serve. Whip the cream with the sugar until soft peaks form. Spoon whipped cream onto pudding. Sprinkle cookie crumbles over whipped cream and serve.
