Layered Pumpkin Dessert
Total TimePrep: 40 min. + cooling Bake: 15 min. + chilling
I made this for my work place and everyone loved it. It was a lot of work , but all the raves were worth it.
This recipe is much more time consuming than it is worth. There are other pumpkin recipes similar to this that are much easier and tastier.
My grandmother has been making this for years and everybody loves it! I took a turn making it and allthough it is some work it is worth it!
It was great and light!
I made this for Thanksgiving. It was somewhat time consuming, but I found it to be worth the effort. I was swarmed with compliments. I was even told by one individual that this was the best dessert she'd ever tasted.Note: cooking the egg whites in a saucepan while beating them with mixers did not work for me because of the tephlon coating of my pan. So, I whipped them on high speed in my Kitchen-Aid stand mixer (and did not heat them).
The taste of this dessert is five stars. I gave four stars however due to all of the steps involved with the pumpkin layer. Very do able just very time consuming. Oh, I also used Coolwhip in place of the whipped cream for personal preference.
This is a great dessert for the fall. It takes some time to put together but is definitely worth the effort - absolutely yummy!
I thought this was really good. The directions were a bit fussy - could easily be streamlined. But the results were quite tasty! I brought this to our block party and it was gone by the end of the night!
I had no luck with cooking the egg whites and then beating them. Here is a hint that will save time and simplify the recipe. Save the egg whites for another use. Instead, stiffly whip 1 cup whipping cream and fold that into the cooled pumpkin mixture. Other changes I made included, used gingersnap crumbs instead of graham wafer crumbs for the base, substitued pumpkin pie spice for the cinnamon, garnished the top with toasted pecans and drizzled carmel ice cream sauce over each piece once it was on each plate. I served this dessert at our Canadian Thanksgiving dinner, Oct 12. The eighteen guests all LOVED the presentation and the flavor. (Since the dessert is so rich, cutting it into 18 pieces still gave everyone a good sized piece after a BIG meal.) E.E.
