This is a great recipes...I did change it a bit however...I used angel food cake which made it a nice fluffy dessert..also I used cool whip and skorr bar crushed up for on top and topping each layer..absolutely fabulous! Many comments on it at Thanksgiving.

This is it!!! If you want a fantastic alternative to pumpkin pie, you've found it. Thanks, Yooper, for helping me with my confusion about the weight of the butterscotch pudding packages. I discovered that the packages that contain sugar weigh 3.4 oz. while the sugar-free packages weigh 1 oz. Anyway, I used the ones with sugar. The trifle was quite spectacular in our trifle bowl and it was really a hit. Thanks again, Yooper.

Yummy alternative to pumpkin pie! I used Cool Whip instead of the whipping cream. It was a big hit!

I served this as dessert at our family's New Year's Day gathering. It was very much enjoyed by all. I used 2 cups of cooked and pureed fresh pumpkin and only 3 packages of the instant pudding mix. Instead of whipping cream I used dessert topping from a powdered mix. It looked so pretty in my glass serving bowl. This will definitely be made again!

This showed up at our church Thanksgiving potluck this year and was devoured almost instantly. I was lucky enough to sample a couple of bites! I will definitely be making this in the future -- what a great alternative to pumpkin pie. (If you need one. If not, it's just a great addition to your holiday dessert table!!!!)
