pumpkin spice trifle

I know, I know, I’m like *SO* a day late for this.

So, one of two things. Either, you’re so sick of pumpkin you’re going to skip right over this post or –

number two, you cannot get ENOUGH of pumpkin flavor, and it’s still fall, and you gave away all your desserts to your party guests standing in line with take-home containers. *cough*

So, I’ll be making more fall desserts.

And yes, I finally did it.

I have altered yet another version of my No Nanner Brownie Puddin’, and Slap Yo Mama Puddin.

Really this dessert was made for me because I HATE PUMPKIN PIE.

Yes, I said it. The texture is reminiscent of cat food. Bleck.

Did I just ruin it for anybody?

But I love the flavor! I like pumpkin bread, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin muffins, pump-

Ok, sounding a little Forrest Gumpy there.

And by the way, I don’t know HOW all those Southern Living ladies get their trifle’s so perfect?!

HOW do they have clean layers and edges?

My grandmother hated and cursed trifles.

Maybe it comes with practice, but mine is still lip smackin’ good.

It’s starring PUMPKIN flavored Jell-O y’all!

I couldn’t believe it, I had read about it, and then I finally saw it.

Crazy. And crazy good. Maybe I need to use the third box to make pumpkin Jell-O pudding cookies… mmmm.

I always get to thinking when I’m writing with y’all.

Probably didn’t help either that I dropped my pack of Biscoff cookies. Two-thirds of the package was broken, but oh well, pudding hides it!

Work with what you’ve got!

I know some people have a hard time finding these little spiced grahams. Usually I end of getting them at World Market (Cost Plus if you’re reading on the West coast!), but you know where I found ’em this time? WALGREENS! Whoa! *Go Big Box Chain!* You saved me a trip into town!


Y’all make this for the next holiday party you’re going to; I was lucky to give mine away to my best friend as she was having 15 party guests. I think they are still leftovers – how does that always work?

Anyways, y’all are going to die when you try this. And trifles are so easy and fun to make! The last compliment I heard was –

“This is the best dessert I’ve had in a loooong time!” Woot Woot to me!

Ok. You wanna know one more awesome surprise? This month I’ve had two readers send me in recipes! Cinnamon rolls from a great grandmother, and cookies. I’ll feature them on the blog here….

So tell me what awesome trifles y’all have come up with, k?

~Peace, Love, and Pumpkin Y’all!
