Thanksgiving Dessert Table

 I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!  I don't know about you, but I basically just cooked and ate the WHOLE time!  It. Was. Fabulous!!  I have to say that my favorite part of the day is always the dessert.  I mean...HELLO!!  Thats kinda my thing:)  This Thanksgiving I wanted to do a little dessert table and this is what I did...Enjoy the pictures!
 We had Cream Cheese and Butterscotch Pumpkin Pies from Picky Palate...they were to die for!  Also, tons of Oreo Truffles.

 We had Pumpkin Blondies and Pumpkin Whoopie are all on my blog:)  Pumpkin Pies...of course:)

 Pumpkin Gingerbread good!!  Recipe is below.

Pumpkin Gingerbread Trifle or Shots
Recipe from: Paula Deen

2 (14 oz) pkg gingerbread mix (only 1 if doing the shots)
1 (5.1 oz.) box cook-and-serve vanilla pudding mix
1 (30 oz.) can pumpkin pie filling
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
1/3 tsp. cardamom or cinnamon
1 (12 oz.) Cool Whip
1/2 c. gingersnaps

Bake the gingerbread according to the package directions; cool completely.  Meanwhile, prepare the pudding and set aside to cool.  Stir the pumpkin pie filling, sugar, and cinnamon into the pudding.  Crumble 1 batch of gingerbread into the bottom of a large, pretty bowl.  Pour 1/2 of the pudding mixture over the gingerbread, then add a layer of whipped topping.  Repeat with the remaining gingerbread, pudding and whipped topping.  Sprinkle on the top with crushed gingersnaps, if desired.  Refrigerate overnight.  Trifle can be layered in shot glasses.  (I got mine at a Restaurant Supply Store)

  1. Yeah I had great thanksgiving and I did all arrangements at New York venues for thanksgiving party. Ordered a beautiful cake from reputed bakers for the day and hired catering services too. Loved the food served by them.
