I want to start by saying Happy Thanksgiving! Since Thanksgiving is tomorrow I thought it would be appropriate to share one of my favorite Holiday recipes with a little twist 😉
Here is what you will need:
-8oz. Cream Cheese
-1 Cup Pumpkin Puree (canned)
-1/2 Cup Sugar
-1 batch of Whipped Cream (recipe below) OR 1 Tub/Can Pre-made Whipped Cream
-1 Tablespoon Butter
-2 Teaspoons Pumpkin Pie Spice
-1 Teaspoon Vanilla
-6 Mason Jars
Graham Cracker Crust Ingredients:
-1 1/2 Cups of Graham Cracker Crumbs
-1/4 Cup of Sugar
-1/2 Cup of Unsalted Butter @ Room Temperature
Whipped Cream Ingredients:
-2 Cups of Heavy Whipping Cream
-4 Tablespoons of Sugar
-1/2 Teaspoon of Vanilla
Now that you have all of your ingredients, LET’S GET STARTED!
Step 1: Graham Cracker Crust
Combine the graham cracker crumbs, butter & sugar until the crust sticks together when squeezed in your hand. How easy was that?! Now, set your crust aside, we will use it later on.
Step 2: Make your Pumpkin Cheesecake Mixture
With a mixer, beat the cream cheese until it is smooth.
Once your cream cheese is nice & creamy, add the pumpkin puree, sugar, vanilla, butter, pumpkin pie spice and mix until well blended and smooth. Set aside.
Step 3: Whipped Cream
Using a mixer, Add the whipping cream, sugar & vanilla. Whisk just until the whipped cream starts to form stiff peaks.
Step 4: Finish Pumpkin Cheesecake Mixture
Step 5: Layer your Mason Jars! (my personal favorite part)
Start by layering the bottom with the graham cracker crush, followed by a thick layer of pumpkin cheesecake and topped off with whipped cream. Repeat these steps until your jars are full! Top off each jar with a whipped cream swirl & extra graham cracker crust.
Refrigerate for 30-45 min. & ENJOY!
You can also make this in a large glass bowl and serve it with a spoon if you do not have jars to use.
