I realize that I already posted a pumpkin recipe. But honestly? I can’t get enough! This recipe was so quick and easy…not to mention delicious….that I just had to share it with all of you! Oh, and you can make it in cute jars. What’s not to love here?!
3/4 cup ginger cookie crumbs (I want to try this with oreos some time too!)
2 tbs butter, melted
1 eight ounce block of cream cheese, softened
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 cup whipped cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup sugar
Additional whipped cream for layers (I cheated and use a can of Reddi-Whip!)
Additional crumbs for topping
Mix cookie crumbs and butter together. Press into bottoms of 6 jars or other glass dishes used for single servings.
With a mixer, cream together the cream cheese and the sugar until smooth. Slowly add in pumpkin, vanilla, spices and 1 cup whipped cream.
Spoon half of the pumpkin mixture into the jars, dividing evenly amongst them. Add a layer of whipped cream. Spoon in the rest of the pumpkin mixture evenly. Add another layer of whipped cream. Sprinkle with additional crumbs.
Store in refrigerator until ready to serve. I did notice that a couple of hours after I made these and was ready to serve them that the whipped cream was starting to melt. I suppose if you used cool whip, that would not happen, but I prefer the taste of real cream. I would suggest making the pumpkin mixture and storing in the fridge until ready to prepare, then layering right before serving for best results. However, even with the whipped cream a little melted, it was fantastic!
I have made this recipe using graham crackers and it’s delicious that way too! Our new favorite dessert.
This looks delicious! Definitely trying this for Thanksgiving…thanks Tasha!
oops… The email was from Shannon, but the recipe from Tasha… thanks Tasha! 🙂
Gluten free cookies! Great idea!
Yummy! Thanks Shannon… I just bought a couple of boxes of Organic pumpkin puree at Cheese Traders (99 cents!) with which I was lamenting the thought of making ordinary pumpkin pie…
…& with Gluten free cookie crumbs, the recipe is Gfree!
