Easy and Frugal Pumpkin Dessert

We love pumpkin desserts this time of year. There is something about fall that makes me want to make pumpkin desserts. Pumpkin desserts are just not the same in May.

However, I am getting tired of the same old ones I have been making for years. So I have been looking for new and interesting desserts that contain pumpkins.

I found several pumpkin recipes on the Taste Of Home Website.  This one caught my attention because it was so easy and simple and I could easily make it gluten free.

This is not a fancy dessert, but it is really good.  I liked this recipe because it is so easy that even my daughters could  make it and have it turn out well.

I also like this because it is a quick and frugal dessert for the holidays.

I made this gluten free and just served it in individual bowls, but you could easily put this into a graham cracker crust to make more of a pie out of it.  I think that would also be really good.

  5. I made this tonight and put it into a Nilla Wafer crust. It made too much for one pie (2 small pies would work). It was very good!!

  6. I am not big on processed stuff like Cool Whip, but this sounds so easy and light, that I am going to give it a try. With the cream cheese, it’s got to be heavenly.

  7. I just made this for Thanksgiving’s feast tomorrow. It tastes wonderful and light and sweet. I am sure it will be a hit.
