Have you all heard of this Pumpkin Fluff? Sounds sort of pornographic, but no. It’s just a pumpkin treat that’s light and creamy. Still sounds pornographic. I’m digging myself a hole, here. *whistles*
I’m sure it’s been circulating for as long as pumpkin puree has been available, but I only recently discovered it. The recipe I found called for Cool Whip, which I’m totally down with, but I had some cream that needed to be used up, and, well, nothing beats fresh whipped cream IMHO.
Whichever way you choose, if you’re a pumpkin lover, you’ll be all over this. Or…um… Hey, what about those Giants, eh??
Makes approximately 3 cups
Prep time: 5 minutes
Chill time: 2 hours
• 1 cup heavy whipping cream
• 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
• 1 teaspoon vanilla
• 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree
• 1 (3 ounce) box instant vanilla pudding (powder only)
• 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
• Graham crackers (optional)
In a large bowl with an electric mixer on high, whip cream, sugar, and vanilla until stiff peaks form, about 1 minute. Fold in the pumpkin puree, vanilla pudding powder, and spice.
Chill for 2 hours. Serve as a dip with graham crackers or in individual dessert cups and sprinkle a little more pumpkin pie spice on top, if desired.
