This is a pumpkin recipe definitely worth trying! It’s super easy to whip together and it might be one of my new favorite pumpkin desserts. It’s great for parties served in individual little cups.
This month has been a crazy one at our house. We undertook the task of remodeling our kitchen! Since we have lived in our home we have done quite a few projects on our house, including putting in an entire bathroom and installing a whole back yard. I think this project might have been the hardest yet! My husband would go to work all day, and then come home and put many more hours of work into our kitchen. He removed all of our old tile, installed new flooring, replaced our lower cabinets, tore out our pantry, moved our dishwasher, leveled the cabinets, installed our new sink and disposal and rerouted the kitchen water pipes. I helped him with what I could, and I also painted all of our new cabinets white and installed new hardware. I didn’t realize how much I loved my kitchen sink and doing dishes until I didn’t have a sink for 2 weeks! Thank goodness for paper plates. But out of all our home projects, the end result of this one was the best yet. I feel like I have my dream kitchen now! I also feel so thankful for everyone who helped us to be able to do this. We live in the best neighborhood and had so much help! One neighbor came and spent a whole Saturday helping my husband reroute our water to bring it up to city code. My next door neighbor and good friend let my children come and play many times. Her husband even came and helped install our new floor. She’s also remodeling her kitchen so it’s been super busy on our street. The whole reason we were able to get a new kitchen was because of new neighbors who moved in and were remodeling and gave us their cabinets and countertops. I am so blessed to have such good neighbors and friends.
With Thanksgiving coming up this week, this is a great dessert to bring to your family dinner or party. I love desserts that are fast but still super delicious. I first tried this at a Halloween party thrown by Life With Wings. She served them in the cutest little mini cups. I tried one and I knew I wanted to make it again. I am so glad she shared the recipe. Right now, Dollar Tree has the cutest little plastic cups and mini spoons in packs of 24 that would be perfect to serve these in.
No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake
1 package Neufchatel cheese (8 oz), softened
1 can pumpkin puree (15 oz)
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1 package Jell-O sugar-free cheesecake instant flavor pudding (1.1 oz)
1 can sweetened condensed milk (14 oz)
1 container Cool Whip (8 oz) thawed
In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer, beat the cream cheese until light and creamy. Add the rest of the ingredients except the Cool Whip and beat until well combined. Fold in the Cool Whip with a spatula. Allow to chill for 1 hour to set up. Spoon into serving containers (I’ve used larger ones for bigger servings or tiny ones about the size of Dixie cups) and top with Nilla wafers and additional Cool Whip.
