Pumpkin Pie Pudding

My husband loves anything pumpkin, and this creamy, comforting pumpkin pudding recipe is one of his favorites. We make our easy pudding all year long, but it's especially nice in the fall. —Andrea Schaak, Bloomington, Minnesota

      I just have a question. Haven’t made it yet but wonder if it has to be made in a crockpot—can you make this in an oven? What temp and for how long?

      I did not try this yet but definitely will. I prefer to cook my own Pumpkin. I just measure out enough for a pie and freeze it until I need it. The canned Pumpkin tastes gritty to me. I usually eat the filling in the pumpkin pie and throw out the crust so this will be perfect.

      This was excellent. Mine turned out a little different, however, because it was overcooked. I checked it at the 6 hour point and it was 200 degrees. Next time will check at 5 hour mark. Mine turned out more like a cheesecake or crust less pumpkin pie. When cooled I flopped it on a plate like a cake. I sliced it rather than scooped because of the texture. All crock pots are different so I suggest that if you want the pudding texture check sooner than recommended time. If you prefer the cake like texture cook longer. Either way this recipe is very good!

      This is easy and soooooo delicious. It's light and fluffy almost like a mousse.

      I made this pudding for the first time this Thanksgiving. My oven quit 2 days before Thanksgiving so no pumpkin pie ... then I found this recipe. It will serve as my pumpkin pie every year from now on!!!! The convenience of mix, pouring it into a slow cooker and walking away is outstanding!!!

      I made this for Thanksgiving and got raves over this recipe. I love that it is made in the crockpot, so you can whip up the ingredients dump it in and walk off and focus on other things. I was wondering if you could double the recipe. Would you have to extend the cooking time?

      Have made this the last several years, very good, easy & doesn't have to be tended to, just put it in crockpot & go on to something else.

      This is absolutely delicious! I love pumpkin pie, but sometimes not the crust. This solves the problem. I ate it hot and room temperature; works both ways. I will add this to my thanksgiving table.

      Home-made pumpkin pie filling has a much better taste. I did not like the texture. It was very easy to make but I will not make this again.
