Butterscotch Pumpkin Trifle

"Here's a nice alternative to pumpking pie at the end of a holiday meal! Your guests will ooh and ahh, but you'll laugh because this is a no cook recipe! Prep time does not include 2 hour chilling time. I've substituted Cool Whip for the regular whipping cream, and it's fine!"

    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.

    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!

What can I say about myself that hasn't already been mentioned in the police reports? Just kidding! I'm a single guy who loves to cook! Good thing, or I'd starve or go broke eating out! I love to read, horror and mysteries are my favorite. Love music, (except rap) and I'm a huge Green Bay Packer Fan!
