All opinions are mine alone. #DelightfulMoments #CollectiveBias Welcome fall with this delicious Pumpkin Croissant Bread Pudding! Perfect for brunch along with a cup of hot coffee, yum! Hot coffee with my favorite fall flavored creamers. Oh how I love thee. Probably more than I care to admit! I recently was online and one of my friends shared a spreadsheet on how she schedules her week. She works from home like I do, and it can be hard to keep to a strict working schedule when you’re surrounded by non-work things that need to get done. Anyway, on this schedule it listed “work” time from 5:30 am – 8:00 am. If I were to make a schedule spreadsheet like this for myself, do you want to know what those spaces next to 5:30 am – 8:00 am would be labeled? COFFEE. That’s right friends, I need coffee. First thing in the morning, before any of the work gets done. And let me tell you, it is VERY important for my work schedule! One of the reasons why I think I actually get so many different things accomplished in the fall season is because of my beloved coffee with International Delight® Pumpkin Pie Spice Coffee Creamer or my new favorite Chocolate Hazelnut creamer. It may sound silly, but I need that time to just wake up and prepare my brain for the craziness that I know is coming that day. This Pumpkin Croissant Bread Pudding is not only absolutely delicious with your morning coffee, but it uses Pumpkin Pie Spice Creamer in the custard! This is the perfect autumn brunch or potluck recipe as well, and sure to be one of the first dishes gone!
