Pumpkin Mousse



Planning to make pumpkin pie this year?

Skip it, save your thighs and make this.

I know, I know, you think it won't be the same without pumpkin pie.  You always have pumpkin pie, it's tradition.

But this people, means you can eat to your hearts content without any guilt.  This tastes wonderful, creamy, cool and delicious. 

Traditions can be changed you know? 



Pumpkin Mousse Recipe
Adapted from Taste of Home

  4. Does it HAVE to be butterscotch? Can it be vanilla? Or is it butterscotch because of the coloring? Can you taste the butterscotch? Don't get me wrong - I like butterscotch. I just can't wrap my brain around the two flavors together.

  9. A friend of mine made a dessert similar to this last year. She served it with graham crackers and whipped cream. It was delicious! I misplaced the recipe she gave me, so I'm so happy you posted this!
