  • 6 pumpkin Oreo cookies crushed
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar packed
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 5 Davidson's Safest Choice Egg yolks
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/4 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • For The Ganache!
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 8 ounces dark chocolate chips


  • Crush the cookies using a large chopping knife. and place some crumbs at the bottom of 4 one cup containers.
  • Whisk 1/2 cup of the milk with the cornstarch. Set aside.
  • Warm the remaining milk over a low heat.
  • Add the milk to the eggs very gradually so as not to scramble them. Whisk as you add the milk.
  • In a small pan, whisk together the brown sugar and water.
  • Bring to 220 degrees.
  • Once the caramel is complete gradually add it to the milk and egg mixture followed by the remaining cornstarch and milk mixture.
  • Return the mixture to the heat and cook stirring continuously until the mixture becomes thick like a pudding, about 4 minutes over a med-low heat.
  • Add the melted butter, pumpkin and spice and whisk together.
  • Pour the mixture over the crushed cookies to about 1 inch from the top.
  • Transfer to the fridge and let cool.
  • Make the ganache by heating the cream until it starts to bubble around the edges.
  • Add the chocolate chips and stir gently until the chocolate melts and becomes shiny. Set aside.
  • Once the puddings have cooled, pipe or spoon some chocolate ganache on top, just enough to cover the surface.
  • Sprinkle with more crushed cookies and dust lightly with cocoa powder.
  • Serve at once or keep in the fridge until ready to use. Let them come to room temperature before serving.
