Well most of the leaves have fallen off the trees, the temperature has surly plummeted, the Fall is slowly turning into Winter but before it goes we must celebrate Thanksgiving!! Yes! So much to be thankful for, I could name a list that would go on and on but I’ll start with how thankful I am for my family, my beautiful new home, my husband who loves me for me and well the wonderful world of blogging of course!! The #SundaySupper team has gotten together to bring you a wide variety of dishes that we are all thankful for! Paula from Vintage Kitchen is our gracious host today! Sometimes I wish food wasn’t so comforting to me but it is, I prefer to make healthier options for me and my family so when we do have some warm, comforting, thankful dishes, we can indulge and just LOVE it!! One dish I’m thankful for this year is this new dessert I found. I made it back when we first kicked off the Fall season, when my mother-in-law had my daughter for the weekend, my husband and I broke out the fall decorations and then had a nice Date Night for ourselves. This was the dessert I made and may I say, nailed spot on! Super simple and super yummy!! This reminds me…….I need to put together another Date night for me and hubs!
Recipe from: Skinnytaste
What you’ll need:
7 oz 1/3 less fat Cream Cheese
9 inch reduced fat Graham Cracker Crust
1/2 cup of canned pureed pumpkin
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/4 cup brown sugar
8 oz Cool Whip Free, plus more for topping
What to do:
In a large bowl use an electric mixer, whip cream cheese, pumpkin, vanilla, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and brown sugar for a few minutes until it becomes fluffy. Add Cool Whip and whip until smooth. Spoon mixture into pie crust and chill for a few hours, until firm. I made this first then made my appetizers, main dish but by the time I dessert came we were full so we ate it the next night! I think it’s best to let it chill for awhile! Top with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkle of Pumpkin Spice.
This is a super easy dessert that you can make a head of time and bring to any special occasion, or make it for a special night like I did! I love how this is a nice and light peace of heaven!
Before we scroll down to check out out what everyone else is thankful for and what they’ve decided to bring to the dinner table this week, I’d like to say a special thank you to all of my usual readers (you know who you are) I’m so thankful to have the love and support that makes this blog happen everyday. It’s my passion to write and cook and pass this onto my children so they can see what their childhood was like growing up so it means so much to me to have you by myself pushing me along!
