a week of halloween: pumpkin pie pudding

Pudding0.jpgThis recipe hails from A Beautiful Mess, and was made by none other than my husband. Rather than having a recipe for a spooky treat, I wanted to offer a simple alternative that is sweet and delicious and Halloween-inspired. If you were wanting something to scare the crap out of you while you were eating it, then simply look at almost any other recipes being published on WordPress this week. Or make something from Gordon Ramsey while watching his show. Either one will do the trick.

Pudding1Pumpkin Pie Pudding:

1 box vanilla pudding mix

3 cups milk

1/2 cup pumpkin puree

2 tbsp cinnamon

2-3 cups whipped cream

1 cup ground ginger snap cookies

Pudding5Steps:

1. Lets start with the hardest task; making the vanilla pudding according to the directions listed on the box. If you can do this, the rest of the recipe is a breeze.

Pudding42. After the pudding is complete, whisk in the cinnamon and pumpkin puree and put it into the refrigerator.

Pudding23. Next, ground up the ginger snap cookies. I opted to use a tea towel and a miniature meat tenderizer. This actually worked better than I had expected.

Pudding64. Lastly, layer your dessert. Sprinkle in a base layer of cookie crumbs, add the pudding mix, sprinkle another layer of cookie crumbs, and finally the pudding again. Finish it off with cool whip.

  • Hello, friends. My name is Emory. I live on the Canadian prairies with my husband, daughter, and animals. Welcome!

  • Thank you to all those who liked, commented, and sent me messages yesterday. I am overwhelmed by your love. I would like to share one more thing. Since 2013, I have used my blog as a creative outlet and my Instagram account as my diary. I feel it’s a much better platform to reach out to others, and to be more truthful (if we dare). I try to only follow those who don’t always show the ups and highs of their “perfect” lives. While I think that the more popular, beige square, ad-infused, California chic, glam mother accounts are beautiful, I also find them to be depressing and unoriginal. A miscarriage is real. It is nothing to be ashamed of. If you don’t choose to discuss yours, that’s totally fine! I needed to share mine in order to begin my grieving and healing process. I am now a mother to two children. This is something that I did not want to, nor will I ever hide. Yes, our second child came much too early and did not survive, but that does not make his/her life any less worthy. Our baby was alive at one time. Our baby has a soul. Now, our baby has a name and will forever be part of our family. We are a family of four- three on earth and one angel in heaven. So, thanks again all. Sadness. What a difference a year can make. Last holiday season, Remy turned 10 months old. She had just gotten her first two teeth, and on Christmas morning, had learned to crawl. This year, we are mourning the loss of our second child. I suffered a miscarriage this week, and it has left a deep void in our family. This was going to be our Christmas card where we revealed to friends and family our joyous secret. Now, it remains one of our only photos as a family of four. Because of this, I want to share it with the world. Give your children an extra hug and kiss for me tonight. You are so blessed to have them. All my love, Emory.
