Pumpkin Pie Parfait

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by sheepdoc

Adapted from several I found on the Internet. Recipe called for butterscotch pudding, which I used, but you could taste the butterscotch too much so I think vanilla would be better. Cooking time is cooling time.

Top Review by Mia in Germany

This was an unusual, delicious dessert! I used gluten free ginger snaps, homemade pumpkin puree (no canned pumpkin available here) and almond milk to be cow's milk free. For the cool whip, which doesn't exist in Germany, I used rice whip (kind of whipped cream on rice base). But I think the flavour must have come out like intended despite all these changes, and we really loved it. Thanks for sharing!<br/>Made for PAC Spring 2013
