Pumpkin isn’t just for early fall! This festive dessert comes together in a snap and is cute enough for any holiday table.
To present the pudding as pictured, add a dollop of whipped cream and a light sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice. Nestle a gingerbread cookie or two in the pudding and serve immediately.
You can adjust the spice to your own taste by mixing nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, allspice, and ginger until you find the proportions that work best for you.
