A Thanksgiving Delight: A Pumpkin Trifle Recipe the Whole Family Can Enjoy.
Thanksgiving is the perfect time to savor the joys of togetherness, express gratitude, and, of course, indulge in delectable treats that warm our hearts. As a seasoned mortgage loan advisor with 19 years of experience, I’ve seen how sharing a meal can strengthen bonds and build relationships, not only in the world of real estate, but within our own homes with friends, family and neighbors. Today, I’m excited to share not just the significance of Thanksgiving but also a mouthwatering Thanksgiving Trifle recipe that will have everyone coming back for seconds.
Thanksgiving transcends the delightful aroma of roasted turkey and the allure of pumpkin pie; it’s about connection. Just as sharing a meal can transform acquaintances into friends, the real estate industry thrives on trust and relationships. It’s through breaking bread and sharing stories that we build connections that last a lifetime. Creating these traditions within our homes helps our children learn how important family is. When I was a little girl, I remember my mother making pie’s from scratch the night before as my father was the one who always prepared the massive bird. The windows were always open as the cool air filled the house. Thats when I knew, the holidays are here. The holidays are my favorite time of year. The scents, the cool air, the coming together for fun, food and football gives me a big sigh of happiness.
Now, let’s add a sweet twist to your Thanksgiving celebration with a Pumpkin Cake Trifle, a delightful fusion of flavors that will leave your guests craving for more. If you make this dessert this year, you must send me a photo of how yours turned out.
- 1 prepared pumpkin cake
- 1 box crispy ginger snap cookies
- 2 packages (3.4 ounces) instant vanilla pudding mix
- 3 cups cold skim milk
- 1 (15-ounce) canned pumpkin
- 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
- 3 cups frozen whipped topping, thawed (I use Cool Whip)
- Start by preparing the cream filling. In a large mixing bowl, combine the pudding mix and cold skim milk. Use an electric hand mixer on low to medium speed to blend for 2 minutes until it thickens.
- Add the canned pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice, then continue to mix until well-integrated, which should take about 30 seconds to 1 minute.
- Gently fold in the thawed whipped topping.
- Cover the mixture and chill for 30 minutes to an hour to allow it to set.
- Cut the pumpkin cake into 1-inch cubes.
- Begin layering your trifle in a glass dish. Start with half of the cake as the first layer.
- Top the cake layer with broken ginger snap cookies. Use around 8-10 cookies, broken into 1-inch pieces.
- Spread half of the pumpkin cream mixture over the cookie layer.
- Continue with another layer of cake and cookies.
- Top it all off with the remaining cream layer.
- Cover the trifle dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate it until you’re ready to serve.
- Just before serving, garnish the trifle with cookie crumbs and pieces. If you desire, you can decorate it with whole cookies for an extra touch of elegance.
