Pumpkin Pudding Crunch


As much as I love to cook and bake, I don't like to spend all day in the kitchen -especially in a diminutive NYC apartment kitchen.  When I find a recipe that is simple and quick, right away I put it to the test to see if it's one that's worth adding to my arsenal of great recipes to make. As soon as I saw this recipe on LIVE! With Kelly and Michael...I knew I had to try it, and believe it or not, this is already the second time I've made it for friends at my dinner parties. So, it's safe to say - it's a keeper.

But since I'm bad at following recipes to a T, I usually somehow find a way to adapt the recipe to my own taste.   I substituted almond milk for the carnation milk and I use only 1/2 cup of sugar instead of the full cup of sugar. Also, I decided to divide the dessert by putting it in ramekins to create individualized desserts. I felt it presented well that way, but of course if you're making it for more than 6-8 people, I guess it would be more practical to bake it in a long rectangular Pyrex.
