Thanksgiving Goodies

I found this great recipe and wanted to share it. We sometimes get tired of the same ole fixings for Thanksgiving so here is a new idea to try. Hope you enjoy!

Pumpkin Trifle

Serves 8

Ingredients
1/2 pint heavy cream
1/2 cup sugar
1 loaf pumpkin bread, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
1 (10-ounce) jar pumpkin butter
1 cup caramel sauce
2 cups prepared vanilla pudding
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts or pecans

Preparation
1. In a medium bowl, using an electric mixer on medium speed, whip the cream with the sugar until stiff.

2. Arrange the remaining ingredients (except nuts) in layers in a serving dish or small individual cups: Start with whipped cream, add some pumpkin bread (cut into even smaller pieces if too large for individual dishes), spoon on some pumpkin butter, drizzle with caramel sauce, and spoon on some vanilla pudding.

3. Repeat until all ingredients are used.

4. Top with a dollop of whipped cream for flourish.

5. Sprinkle serving dish or individual dishes with the nuts.

6. Refrigerate until chilled, at least 30 minutes.

Simplify: If you can’t find pumpkin bread, substitute cranberry-nut bread, pound cake or gingerbread.
