Fall is easily one of my  favorite times of the year.  I just can't help but love the cooler days, wearing of light sweaters, wrapping up in blankets on the couch, and weekend football.  Having grown up in Vermont, it probably goes without saying that the strikingly beautiful colors of fall foliage hold a very special place in my heart.  But would you like to know what I love even more?  All the wonderful pumpkin desserts that make their appearances! 

To me, pumpkin desserts simply exude the spirit of fall.  Whether it's pumpkin cake, creamy mousse, or a traditional pumpkin pie, the warm flavors of pumpkin with cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg are the perfect complement for any fall-festive occasion.   

I'm happy to report this Pumpkin Mousse Pie is no exception.

With its gingersnap crust and creamy filling, PumpkinMousse Pie will quickly become a seasonal favorite to help you celebrate all those special events {or random Tuesdays} of fall!   

Not only does Creamy Pumpkin Mousse Pie taste fantastic with all the flavors of fall, it's easy to prepare, too.  For the crust, simply crush some gingersnap cookies ~ a food processor makes very quick work of this.  Then mix the gingersnap crumbs with a little melted butter and press into a pie plate.

For the pumpkin mousse filling, mix together a can of pumpkin with a package of JELL-O instant vanilla pudding, a touch of milk, pumpkin pie spice, and Cool Whip non-dairy whipped topping.  You'll have a quick-and-easy creamy, dreamy pie filling that will be hard to resist gobbling up with a spoon!

Now while you sure could simply eat the mousse filling with a spoon, it's totally worth spooning it into the gingersnap crust to create this flavorful pie.  Chill it overnight, garnish with a few more gingersnap cookies, and then get ready to enjoy the pumpkin deliciousness.  Full of fall flavors, Creamy Pumpkin MoussePie is the perfect way to celebrate fall's favorite fruit.
