Pumpkin Layer Dessert

Here's the recipe to the pumpkin dessert I made last week. I can't promise that the measurements are exactly correct, because I rarely measure anything. I made the best estimation. I'm not a very good food blogger...I don't have a picture!

Pumpkin Layer Dessert


1 1/2 sleeves of graham crackers, crushed
3 Tbs. butter
1 Tbs. sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ginger

Mixed ingredients together and press on bottom and sides of pie pan. Store in refrigerator while preparing the next layer.

Bottom Layer:

4 Tbs. cream cheese, softened
1 Tbs. sugar
1 Tbs. milk
4 oz. whipped cream
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 tsp. cinnamon

Cream together cream cheese and sugar. Add milk until mixed. Fold in whipped cream until mixed. Fold in pumpkin puree and spices until well blended. Spread on top of crust. Refrigerate 30 minutes.

Top Layer:

1 package vanilla pudding
1 cup milk
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ginger
1/2 tsp. nutmeg

Mix pudding mix and milk together. Add pumpkin puree and spices. Mix well. Spread on top of cream cheese layer. Refrigerate at least 1 hour.

Top with 4 oz. whipped cream before serving.
