dreams are made of this new pumpkin love…
Obviously pumpkin is on everyone’s brain this week…and my brain is defiantly no exception. Really to be honest pumpkin is all I can think about…I just love pumpkin everything.
Now the traditional pumpkin desserts are perfect for your Thanksgiving table but this year I wanted to change things up a bit and create a lighter dessert but with all the best it had to offer. The first layer is a delicious graham cracker crust, it is buttery and a little crunchy. Next there is a cheesecake layer that is light with the added whipped cream but still very rich. Next comes the pumpkin layer that is a wonderful pudding like layer loaded with tons of flavor. Then top it all off with more whipped cream and a few chopped pecans and you have a delicious light dessert that is still full of everything you love about fall.
We had a little family dinner this past weekend and I was supposed to bring dessert so I whipped this up and everyone LOVED it! They couldn’t believe how light it was while still being rich.
A light pumpkin cheesecake dessert that is a perfect addition to your more traditional Holiday desserts

For this recipe I used my all day whipped cream which really added in a lightness that didn’t deflate…it was so good!
