This whipped pumpkin parfait is an easy desert to make and you can make it for Thanksgiving too!

This whipped pumpkin parfait is so easy to make that I have my kids help me. They love to help me cook and I love the bonding time I get with them in the kitchen! The bonus part to making this recipe is that it's not only great for Halloween, but you can make it for Thanksgiving dessert too.

Parfait Ingredients:

3/4 cup cold milk

1 package (3.4 ounces) instant vanilla pudding mix

2 cups whipped topping

1 cup canned pumpkin

1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

1 cup chopped pecans

32 gingersnap cookies, crushed (about 1-1/2 cups)

Additional whipped topping for garnish

In a large mixing bowl, beat milk and pudding mix on low speed for 2 minutes.

Stir in the whipped topping, pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice. Fold in pecans.

Spoon half of the mixture into parfait glasses; top with half of the gingersnap crumbs. Repeat layers.

Top with additional whipped topping.

For a nice touch sprinkle a few pecans on the top.
