Tips for Making Pumpkin Pudding Cookies
- If you can’t find pumpkin pie pudding, use vanilla pudding and add a half-teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice.
- Change the chips. Make these cookies Halloween-ready by using dark chocolate chips and turning them into spooky spiders.
- Make sure you use pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie filling. Canned pumpkin pie filling has additional ingredients that can spoil the flavor and texture of these cookies.
What to Serve with Pumpkin Pudding Cookies
These cookies add delicious holiday flavor to any gathering. If you’re serving them to kids, try a tasty, nonalcoholic apple punch.
If you’re serving them at a grownup gathering, serve rum to bring out the warmth and richness of the spices. Try this hot buttered rum for a spectacular party pairing.
