These cute little desserts grabbed our attention this morning on our Instagram feed! Thanks to @magnoliamarket - they had the amazing recipe posted on their blog & I knew we had to try it for Thanksgiving this year. Without further ado, here is the recipe!
Ingredients:
•10 Graham Crackers, crushed into crumbs*
•1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
•8 ounces cream cheese, softened
•1 cup pure pumpkin puree
•1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
•1/2 cup sugar
•1 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
•1 large tub (12 oz.) whipped topping (Cool Whip)

Directions:
1. Crush Graham Crackers and mix with butter. Press onto the bottom of jar or serving glass.
2. With a mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth, then add the pumpkin, vanilla, sugar, and pumpkin pie spice. Mix it all together until it’s creamy.
3. Add half of the whipped topping or whipped cream and gently stir it together.
4. To assemble, spoon a layer of your pumpkin cheesecake mix over the cookies in each jar and top with whipped cream if desired.
*I'm trying this recipe with gluten free graham wafer crumbs - they are a life saver if you need to be gluten free!
