Pumpkin & Gingersnap Parfaits 2018


Pumpkin & Gingersnap Parfaits was a recipe I found in ” First For Women” Magazine and I tweaked it just a little. 

1 (15 oz.) can pumpkin puree, 3/4 cup maple syrup,  1 orange juiced,

2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice divided, 1/2 cup pecans toasted, 12 gingersnap cookies,

2 cups whipped cream

In a saucepan over medium heat, whisk pumpkin puree, syrup, 1/2 cup orange juice, and 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice.  Bring to a simmer; cook 20 minutes. In a processor, pulse pecans, cookies, and remaining pie spice until crumbly. In each of 6 dessert glasses, layer pumpkin butter whipped cream and gingersnap crumbs as desired.

Above recipe is the original recipe in the magazine, I changed the crumbs and used a German cookie called Pfeffernusse, I personally love the taste of these cookies and they gave a unique taste to my parfaits.
