Crushed cookies give yummy crunch to this creamy dessert from Mary Smith. In Litchfield, Michigan, she uses cooked pumpkin and pie spice for the comforting fall pudding. "Try molasses cookies instead of gingersnaps," she says.

"Love it!! I make this every year and give to friends. Can also substitute sugar free/ fat free ingrediants with excellent results."

"This was a great recipe. I tried it when I made my father dinner recently, and he really enjoyed it, as did my teenaged stepson. I couldn't find canned pumpkin at the dollar store, so I just substituted canned sweet potato casserole. I also lacked pumpkin pie spice, so I mixed in cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. The end result was delicious. I'd definitely make this again, my way or the original way."
