Pumpkin Cheese Layer Dessert

Labels: , , ,

For Thanksgiving this year, I didn't want to make pie nor bake pumpkin cheesecake. It's just too much trouble preparing crust, etc. No bake was the only way to go. I used the mashed sweet baby pumpkin I had in the freezer to shorten the prep. Canned pumpkin is also good for this recipe.

Honey Graham crackers are already a bit sweet so I used just a tablespoon of sugar. You can add more sugar according to your preference.
