Pumpkin Spice Layered Lush Recipe
Pumpkin Spice Layered Lush a Seasonal Dessert
This dessert is flexible, so you can prepare it using whatever flavor pudding you enjoy, they're all delicious! For my pumpkin version, I replaced the shortbread crust with a nutty cinnamon laced graham cracker crust, and I added a sprinkle of English toffee bits for a little surprise crunch in the middle. Give it time to chill thoroughly and serve it for a special fall treat, especially nice for your Thanksgiving dessert table.
Other Pumpkin Treats to Enjoy
We all associate pumpkin with the fall and holiday season. due to this my theory is, you should enjoy it any way you can. Here in the MSSK recipe index you'll find a scrumptious Pumpkin Cream Pie with Bourbon Whipped Cream and Pumpkin Cheesecake Parfaits, Another fabulous treat is this Pumpkin Pie Crunch from Spend with Pennies and Pumpkin Sweet Cream Chocolate Trifle from The Slow Roasted Italian.
