Pumpkin Lasagna Dessert is knockin’ on Thanksgiving’s door big-time! Creamy, dreamy layers of puddings, cheesecake and whipped cream sinfully and deliciously layered on top of a crunchy pecan crust.
End your family Thanksgiving meal on a sweet note with this Pumpkin Lasagna Dessert!
There’s enough for 12 to 16 servings depending on how big your servings are and when I said this was sinfully delicious in the first paragraph, I was not kidding, one little bit!
You can leave the pecans out if you want. I like them for the crunchiness. I wanted to add some toffee on top, but the hubs was like umm…no! But I did add some white chocolate bits, but you can modify to your own liking.
He likes it when I ask his opinion and he does have a lot of good ideas, but sometimes he thinks his ideas are all the best, which a lot of them are, except “Houston!”, we have a slight problem.
He’s a total dessert snob! UGH!! He always turns his nose up when I suggest I’m going to make something with peppermint, banana, lemon, apple, walnuts, marshmallows, or with Whoppers and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. I have to mix it up honey!
Anyways, I knew he would give his stamp of approval for this dessert. He loves pumpkin and whipped cream and everything else in this luscious pan, so it was a win-win at the homestead for sure!
This a dessert you can make a day or two ahead of time. In fact, preparing it and letting it set in overnight in the fridge and serving it the next day is the best. It does need to set up at least 2 hours.
