So a big change has flown into our home like a giant tornado…we adopted a puppy. A little stinker. A cute little ankle biter Labradoodle named Molly! She’s been with us for one week now, and wow. Puppies are busy! I feel the need to share this news with you because she’s become such an all consuming part of our home. We’re wrapped around her little paws.
But what does she have to do with this Pumpkin Delight Dessert recipe?
Well, let’s just say blogging has become a bit harder to do these days. Because this…
Ummmmmm…puppies licking the props makes for a very difficult time taking pictures. Trying to get a photo of this Pumpkin Delight dessert was a challenge hahaha! But on the bright side, I can now say not only is this dessert family and kid approved, but apparently it’s also puppy approved. Le sigh.
Anyway, back to dessert. For Thanksgiving (Canadian Thanksgiving) this year, I didn’t feel like making a traditional pumpkin pie, so I decided to try something new. I wanted the taste of pumpkin pie, but without the traditional pie crust. So when I saw a recipe for Pumpkin Delight on the blog Li’l Luna, I needed to make it. I changed up a couple of the ingredients, and used my own recipe for the crust (it’s the same recipe I use for my Pudding In a Pan recipe), and it turned out SO fantastic! It’s light, airy and full of delicious fall pumpkin pie flavour!
This dessert isn’t complicated, but it takes a little time to prepare. The good news is it actually tastes even better after it has sat for a day or even 2, so you can make it ahead of time. Letting it rest and set for a a day or so, softens the crust and allows for the pumpkin and spices to meld together. So delicious. And who can’t love a dessert that you can make ahead of time, then just pull out of the fridge when you’re ready for it? Takes away so much stress during holiday dinner preparations.
If you’re looking for an alternative to pumpkin pie, you should try this! We all loved it so much!
