All your favorite flavors of pumpkin pie blended in a Pumpkin Pie Parfait topped with creamy yogurt and a oatmeal crumble.
I am a sucker for a slice of a good pumpkin pie and I surely can’t wait until Thanksgiving to get my pumpkin pie fix. I remember when I was a kid I didn’t like pumpkin pie. #whatwasithinking. Pumpkin pie is the best. Sweet, creamy with a hint of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. Come January when I pass around the coffee and the pumpkin pie far too many times, I put pumpkin on the back burner for another nine months.
When the leaves begin to change and there’s a chill in the air, I am in the mood for pumpkin again. It is love at first bite. I promise I’ll keep my pumpkin recipes to a minium, so this will be the only one…at least for this week.
What I love about this pumpkin pie parfait is you can easily customize it to your preference. You could use ice cream or whipped cream in place of the yogurt for a sweeter dessert, perfect for entertaining. You could also omit the oatmeal crumble and just have a nice thick layer of crumbled ginger snaps or use granola you have on hand.
The pumpkin filling is everything I use in my classic pumpkin pie without the crust. So I guess I don’t feel as guilty when I keep eating spoonfuls of this yummy filling. It is so easy to make. You just add all the ingredients into a large bowl and whisk it up until blended. Pour it into a greased 8 inch baking pan and bake it for about an hour. Simple as that. Once its cooled, add spoonfuls of the filling into th parfait and enjoy! You can even make these ahead in small mason jar and have them on hand to take to work, after school snacks or perfect for a fall picnic at the pumpkin patch.
