Good Morning! I’m still visiting with my family who is in town. Life is crazy full at the moment & I’m certainly ready for some comfort food. I don’t know about you- but flavors like salted caramel top my list for comfort. Add in there a little pumpkin spice & it just screams fall for me. I have about a million different things I was going to make but I kept coming back to the idea of salted caramel pudding. But I really wanted to make it more fall like- especially since I don’t do a lot of recipes with actual pumpkin in them. But I do love pumpkin spice- so I came up with…
The salt mixed with the rich flavors of caramel & pumpkin spice is the perfect blend.

- Crack your eggs into a separate bowl- whisk & set aside.
