Dannielle's Pumpkin Pudding

Dannielle's Pumpkin Pudding

Our Editor Shares an Old Family Recipe

Sometimes in life there are desserts so wonderful and decadent we dream and talk about them constantly. Friends, this is one of those moments.

In today’s video, our own editor-at-large and Top Chef: Just Desserts judge Dannielle Kyrillos shares her mom Patti’s tried-and-true recipe for pumpkin pudding — or, as we affectionately call it, pumpkin fluff. Her family ate it every Thanksgiving when Kyrillos was growing up in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

The best part: It’s inexpensive (no fancy ingredients) and really easy. The total cooking time is about ten minutes if you have everything prepped. Even our editors who can’t boil water aced it.

You can thank us later.
