Cheesecake Cookie Bread Pudding…with Caramel Sauce

There is nothing I like better than spending a morning with my boys in the kitchen. I created this fun dessert for and we’ve used some of our favorite cookies, the Keebler Cheesecake Middle Graham Cookies all crumbled up on top of the bread pudding. Wait until you dig into this treat. As if it weren’t delicious enough, we’ve added a caramel sauce to top it all off ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Hope you enjoy!

My little guys have helped show us how to prepare this dish below, these photos kill me, lol! I will be sure to show their girlfriends later in life ๐Ÿ™‚

Find a nice big mixing bowl and add your milk, cream and vanilla.

Add your eggs…

…and the sugar ๐Ÿ™‚

Pour everything in the bowl.

Time for a good whisk to combine.

Place your bread cubes into your prepared baking dish.

Like so ๐Ÿ™‚

Now pour your egg/cream mixture over your bread.

It will look like this.

Mmmm, cookies!

Break up the cookies into little pieces.

Place right on top of the pudding.

Time to bake.


Drizzle your simple caramel sauce over top and time to serve!


Cheesecake Cookie Bread Pudding….with Caramel Sauce

1 1/2 Cups granulated sugar

5 large eggs

1 Cup whole milk

1 Cup heavy cream

2 teaspoons pure vanilla

5 Cups Sweet Hawaiian Bread, cut into 1/2 inch cubes

1 package Keebler Cheesecake Middle Graham Cookies

Caramel Sauce

1/2 Cup packed light brown sugar

1 Tablespoon water

2 Tablespoons butter

3 Tablespoons heavy cream

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 13 x 9 inch pan with non stick cooking spray. In a large bowl whisk the sugar, eggs, milk, cream and vanilla until well combined. Pour mixture over bread cubes that have been poured into prepared baking dish.

2. Crumble the cheesecake cookies until they are in tiny pieces, they do not have to be perfect. Place crumbled cookies evenly over bread pudding and bake for 35-40 minutes or until set. Remove from oven.

3. To prepare caramel sauce, place brown sugar and water into a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir and let bubble for 5 minutes then stir in butter and heavy cream. Stir until smooth then drizzle over warm bread pudding. Spoon into serving dishes and serve warm.

    This looks fantastic! And that caramel sauce puts it right over the top. At my bridal shower, my soon to be mother in law gave me a photo album filled with recipes and pictures of my husband cooking and eating as a child. It was one of my favorite gifts! These pictures would be great in something like that down the road ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. 22

    I think I could eat a bowl full of that! What a great idea.

    Mrs. L says:

    I’m normally not a big fan of bread pudding, but this looks like something I could eat the entire batch of!

  24. 24

    Those cheesecake cookies are a brilliant idea. My mind is spinning with other uses. Although, this bread pudding sounds so good maybe I’ll let my brain rest and just stop there!

    Lisa says:

    This looks so good! Wish we could make it but always shy away from bread pudding because of the egg. I don’t doubt it’s baked long enough but my daughter most likely wouldn’t do well eating it. She has an egg allergy. Does okay with baked goods like cookies but we cannot do scrambled and when we have french toast she gets cinnamon toast or plain butterd toast with syrup for dipping.

    A couple of weeks ago when my husband asked me to make some bread pudding for him I was none to happy about the idea. I don’t like soggy bread. Your recipe is the first one I’ve seen that actually looks good to me.

    Love the pictures of your sweet boys – what great little helpers. This bread pudding is making me salivate. Thinking of dessert at 9 in the morning isn’t such a bad thing.
