We love this Pumpkin Cheesecake Parfait

Let’s just get right to it friends….this decadent, no-bake dessert will knock your socks off!  I can only say that because it’s gotten rave reviews from those who tried it, including a dear friend who hates all things pumpkin.  That’s right, she dislikes pumpkin (say it ain’t so) and yet she LOVED this pumpkin cheesecake parfait.

Last year I was able to win her over with my Vegan Pumpkin Swirl Cheesecake and now this!  I’m on a pumpkin winning streak!

    I feel like after making all the Thanksgiving fixings this dessert is the answer to the ‘no more!’ feels of planning a family feast. I actually still haven’t tried a sweet pumpkin treat, it isn’t very popular here in Germany.

      I know how you feel when it comes to all the holiday cooking…sometimes you just need a little break and this will give it to you! I say it’s time to share the sweet pumpkin with Germany….they’ll thank YOU for it
