Pumpkin Pie Pudding

Recipes > Pumpkin Pie Pudding
If you try no other recipes from this blog, at least try this one.  It was SO good.  The recipes comes from Cooking Light Magazine with just a few changes.  It is silky and smooth with a great pumpkin pie taste without too much spice.  Thomas says we should put it in a pie crust and it would be the perfect pumpkin pie.
The candied nuts and whipped cream are garnishes, but really brought it all together; don’t leave them off!
Pumpkin Pie Pudding
Cooking Light Magazine
1/2 cup sugar, divided
2 T. cornstarch
1 3/4 c. 1 % milk (this is cooking light… I did 1 cup whole milk and 3/4 c. whipping cream instead, don’t fear the fat people!)
1 large egg
1/2 c. canned unsweetened pumpkin
1 t. vanilla
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/8 t. ground nutmeg
1/8 t. salt
1/4 c. chopped walnuts
dash salt
1/4 c. heavy whipping cream
Combine 6 T. sugar and 2 T. cornstarch in a medium saucepan.  Place pan over medium heat.  Gradually whisk in the milk and egg and combine well.  Stirring constantly bring to a boil, cook 1 minutes, remove from heat.
Combine pumpkin, vanilla, spices, and salt in a separate bowl and gradually add to the milk mixture whisking constantly.  Place the pudding over low heat and cook for 3 minutes until throughly heated, but do not let boil.  Divide pudding into 4 serving cups, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled.
Place remaining 2 T. of sugar, dash of salt, and nuts in a small skillet over low to medium low heat.  Cook until sugar dissolves and is golden (about 3 minutes), stirring frequently to coat the nuts.  Transfer to lightly greased wax paper and cool completely.
Place cream in a bowl and beat with mixer at high speed until stiff peaks form.
Serve pudding when chilled with nuts and whipped cream on top.

  1. They shouldn’t curdle at the medium temperate… if you bring it to a boil too fast or add the eggs to hot milk they will get nasty. But no, I’ve never had that happen.
