Pumpkin Pie Bread Pudding

12-14 slices of white bread
3 eggs, slightly beaten
2 cups milk
2 cups pumpkin pie spice flavored creamer
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 roll premade pie crust

heavy cream
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
pumpkin pie spice*optional*

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. After letting the bread set out on the counter for several hours, tear up into small-medium pieces. Place the torn bread into a large bowl.

Add the eggs, milk, creamer, brown sugar, pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice and vanilla to the bowl. Gently combine all of the ingredients until it has the consistency of oatmeal.

Pour the mixture into a greased 9x13 baking dish (or split between two smaller containers).

Unroll pie crust. Cut into small rectangular strips. Sprinkle evenly over the top of the bread pudding.

Bake for 1 hour, until it is set but still slightly moves when jiggled...yes I said jiggled.

Remove from the oven and cool slightly.

While the bread pudding is cooling make the whipped cream.

In a chilled bowl, add 2 cups heavy cream, 1/4 cup sugar and 2 teaspoons of vanilla. Whip the cream until stiff peaks form.

Serve up the Pumpkin Pie Bread Pudding with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkling of pumpkin pie spice.
