This old-fashioned treat is so warm and comforting on chilly evenings. Pumpkin gives it great seasonal appeal, and the white chocolate sauce makes it even more irresistible.—Shirley Glaab, Hattiesburg, Mississippi
My son loves pear crisp, but one night I was making bread pudding. He asked if I could make both. I compromised by combining two desserts into this one dish. It's absolutely fantastic!—Kurt Wait, Redwood City, California
This homey, comforting dessert is a favorite of Loretta Dressel of Nathrop, Colorado. The texture is neither soggy nor dry, and the lemony sauce drizzled on top is delightful.

“Some leftover bread, an open can of chocolate syrup and a package of malted milk balls inspired this yummy recipe. Adding almonds gave the pudding a pleasing crunch,” writes Roxanne Chan from Albany, California.
This recipe started out as a plain bread pudding. My husband, Tom, suggested adding some pecans, then I decided to add the pie filling. These ingredients make the pudding crunchy, moist and even more delicious.
My mother gave me the recipe for this old-fashioned pudding. It's a great way to use up day-old bread. Nothing enhances this traditional dessert better than garden-grown rhubarb. My husband and 8-year-old daughter just love it.
