Easy Apple Pie bread pudding
Submited By: Pineland Farms

This recipe is a great way to use that leftover bread, cake and of course fruitcake from the holidays! Anything will work as the “bread” base as long as it can absorb the egg mixture.
4 cups cubed bread
8 ounces cream cheese cut into pieces
2 cups chopped apples ( you can also substitute a few cranberries for a little kick of tart)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 eggs
4 cups milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
Cinnamon and nutmeg (optional)

Arrange 1/2 of the bread cubes in a lightly greased 9x13inch pan.
Mix apples and/or berries with cinnamon and then spread them and the cream cheese pieces evenly over bread cubes and then top with remaining bread cubes.
Whisk together eggs, milk, honey, sugar, butter, salt and vanilla. Pour over bread mixture in pan and press bread cubes to absorb egg mixture. Cover and chill 6 to 8 hours.
Bake covered in preheated 350F oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until it begins to set.
Sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg if desired and continue to bake uncovered an additional 30 minutes or until lightly browned and set.
Enjoy warm or at room temperature- and it’s great with ice cream or whipped cream!

Step 1: Just ask Judee to make one for you.
Step 2: Say thank you
Although this method may work.. I have another that’s guaranteed!

1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar ( depending on personal taste and type of pumpkin)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk
1 9 inch pie crust** unbaked

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Blend first 8 ingredients using mixer at slow speed and with whisk attachment
Add evaporated milk while mixer is running. Beat until blended.
Pour into prepared crust.
Bake at 425 for 15 minutes.
Reduce temperature to 350 and bake for an additional 45 minutes or until knife placed in center comes out clean.

* you can use canned pumpkin but I use fresh pumpkin. You can use a basic pumpkin but I prefer to use one of the following winter squash:
I find them to be sweeter and not as watery. I like to cut them in half and remove the seeds. Place them cut side up in a pan with some water and bake or roast in a 400degree oven for about 45 minutes to an hour depending on the size of the squash. Just until it’s fork tender. Scoop out the pumpkin place in a bowl and discard the skin. Drain any excess water and run through a food processor just until smooth.

**you can use prepared crust or try our basic crust recipe!
