Pumpkin Trifle. From Country Woman 1993. A great alternative to pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving. I use homemade gingerbread. I have substituted Cool-Whip for the whipping cream. For a company Christmas party one year I took this and Lemon Trifle-used spice cake, no pumpkin or spices; and Chocolate Trifle-used spice cake, no pumpkin or spices. All three went over very well!
This was a HUGE hit. Some of my guests were visibly uspet when it disappeared so quickly that all they got was a spoonful. making this again for my parents birthday on 3/4/12. I even bought two of these special trifle bowls at Bed Bath and Beyond and I know I will get a lot of use out of them.
