Soda Cracker Delight…or the easiest “Toffee” you will ever make!

This is an old school recipe that is still around for a reason…it is awesome!  I believe it has many names and many different versions and this is simply my adaptation.  I will warn you (don’t say I didn’t warn you) it is one of the most addicting desserts ever so you might want to make a couple batches…one for yourself and one to share with others!

I was first introduced to this recipe in high school at my friend’s the Eichler’s house!  Bethany Eichler is one of my oldest and dearest friends and this dessert is one of the many important contributions she has made to my life!  This is really an easy dessert but is impressive both visually and deliciously!  I hope you will try it this holiday season and that it will make a beautiful addition to your dessert table!

Pumpkin Pudding with Toffee Crisp Topping!



HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!

I am thankful for many things this year including my family, friends, and each and every one of you who takes the time to read this blog and support and encourage me!  It really means a lot when you visit, leave a comment and make my recipes!  So THANKS TO YOU!!!  Now on to the recipe!

I had a can of pumpkin in my cubboard that was saying to me, “hey…it’s NOVEMBER!  Use me in something delicious!!!”  So who am I to deny a can of pumpkin its very destiny!  I wasn’t really in the mood for pumpkin bread or pumpkin pie (we are not really crust people) so I decided to try something new!  Pumpkin Pudding!

Pumpkin Pudding it turns out is very much like Pumpkin Pie filling which worked out great for us as that is my favorite part of the pie anyway!  However I did want to spice it up a bit as this was the only destiny this can of pumpkin was EVER going to have and FAR be it from me to let little Pumpy (yes I named the can of pumpkin) down!  SO, I decided to put a Crisp topping much like the kind my mother uses on her Thanksgiving sweet potatoes, on top of my Pumpy Pudding.  However I did not have any Pecans handy so substituted a little bit of crushed toffee for some crunch!  The result was this DELICIOUS and Very Simple concoction that may just become a fall tradition in our family and a future destiny of many Can’s of Pumpkin!  Lucky little devils!
