Fall is easily one of my  favorite times of the year.  I just can't help but love the cooler days {that aren't yet too cold}, pulling the light sweaters out of the closet, wrapping up in blankets on the couch, and watching 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, too.  But do you know what I love even more?  All the wonderful pumpkin desserts making their appearances! 

To me, pumpkin desserts are the absolute spirit of fall.  Whether it's a classic pumpkin cake roll, creamy pumpkin cheesecake, or a slightly non-traditional pumpkin slab pie, the warm flavors of cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg mixed with pumpkin are the perfect complement to any fall occasion.  

I'm happy to report this No-Bake Pumpkin Cream Pie is no exception.

To make this pie extra easy to put together, I use a prepared graham cracker crust.  It would be totally tasty with a homemade gingersnap crumb crust or baked regular pie crust, too though, if you'd prefer.

For the creamy pumpkin filling, mix together a can of 100% pumpkin with a package of  instant vanilla pudding mix, 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!

Spoon the pumpkin filling into the prepared crust.  Then top the pumpkin filling with more Cool Whip that's been mixed with some pumpkin pie spice.  The pumpkin pie spice gives the Cool Whip such wonderful fall flavor.  {fyi ~ You can whip your own whipped cream instead if you prefer that over prepared Cool Whip.}

Sprinkle the top with finely crushed nuts, and chill overnight to allow the pie to fully set.

Then get ready to enjoy the creamy pumpkin deliciousness!  Full of fall flavors, No-Bake Pumpkin Cream Pie is the perfect way to celebrate and enjoy the spirit of fall.

  4. I love how easy this recipe is to make, Tracey. Unfortunately I can't get pudding mix easily, and Cool Whip is not available here, but your recipe has inspired me to have a go at recreating it with other ingredients! I'm featuring this lovely, light finish to a Thanksgiving meal at the Hearth and Soul Link party this week. Thank you so much for sharing, and for being a part of the Hearth and Soul Link party. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

  5. I almost wish I had never seen this recipe (almost I said). It is so good and easy to make. I have made it 3 times in the last week. Now I could make it in my sleep LOL. Its more like a mousse than a cream pie which suits me just fine! Thanks for this .
