October is the month where we all put our summer clothes away and eagerly take out our sweaters, boots, and apply earth-toned lipstick to our lips, holding an infamous pumpkin spice latte in our hands. Nothing says Autumn like pumpkin and pumpkin spice. To celebrate Autumn’s arrival why not try out this super easy no-bake dessert? It’s one of my favourites and a total crowd pleaser.

Makes 6-cups

Ingredients:

1 ¾ Cups Cold Milk (you can substitute it with lactose-free milk or coconut milk if you prefer)

1 Box (4-serving size) Vanilla Instant Pudding

1 Cup Canned Pumpkin

½ teaspoon Pumpkin Spice

1 Package (8-oz.) cream cheese, softened

¾ Cup Powdered Sugar

1 ½ Cups Whipping Cream

1 Box of Keebler’s Sandies

½/ stick of butter (melted)

Directions:

In a medium bowl, stir milk and pudding mix with whisk for 2 minutes. Stir in pumpkin and pumpkin spice. Refrigerate until ready to assemble parfaits.

In a blender put in the Sandies till they’re blended to crumbs. Then take a medium bowl and mix the crumbs with the melted butter. Once the two ingredients are assembled, place these at the bottom of the cups.

Now take another medium bowl, beat cream cheese and powdered sugar with an electric mixer on low speed until blended smooth. In a chilled large bowl, beat heavy cream on high till the whipping cream stiff peaks form. Fold whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture.

In each of the 6 parfait glasses, spoon ¼ cup pumpkin pudding, top each with 6 tablespoons cream cheese mousse mixture. Repeat layers. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until serving time. Just before serving, top each parfait with a Sandies’ cookie.
