DAY 29: Pumpkin Pudding

I cannot believe that there are only a few days left of this 31 day challenge. I have had such a blast and really learned a lot of new recipes and feel much more confident in the kitchen these days.

Cooking for me has become a really wonderful way of bringing people together. I feel so good to invite new friends over and know that will leave with full bellies and smiling faces. It has also become a really wonderful connecting point for my mom and I. I love getting texts sharing "what's for dinner" and being so eager to swap stories.

Our neighborhood is doing trick-or-treating tonight instead of monday, so in the spirit of the season we are making Pumpkin Pudding.
14oz can sweetened condensed milk
15oz can pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie mix)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground allspice
1 tsp ground clove
1 tsp ground ginger
5.1oz package instant vanilla pudding mix
3 cups heavy cream
12 oz box Ginger Snaps

Step 1:Mix the milk, pumpkin, spices, and pudding mix in a bowl. Add about 1/4 cup of water and beat with a mixer until smooth.
Step 2: Whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Fold in the pumpkin mixture until well combined.
Step 3: Layer the ginger snaps and the pudding mix in a serving dish. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit in the fridget for 2-8 hours until the cookies are soft.
Top with whipped cream and cinnamon to serve.
P.S. These pictures aren't mine, wanted to share the recipe as soon as I could.
