Pampered Chef: Need pumpkin ideas for trifle bowl

    I would like to do a pumpkin cheescake for the trifle bowl, sort of like the strawberry cheescake. Does anyone have any ideas? What do you use for the crust/cake part? I was thinking graham cracker crumbs or vanilla wafers layered with some creamcheese/pumpkin and whipcream all mixed and then top it with whip cream and maybe put some candy corn on top? What do you do?

    I found this recipe in another post, sounds good. Someone mentioned adding a small can of pumpkin to the pudding mixture...

    Pumpkin Trifle – non PC
    Jenny Harnack

    Boxed pumpkin bread and ingredients to make bread
    1 16 oz container cool whip
    1 cups skim milk
    1 small pkg cheesecake pudding
    2 1-2 TBSPs PC’s Pantry Sweet Cinnamon Sprinkle
    2 cups chopped pecans

    In Medium Stainless Steel Mixing Bowl, use Small Mix N Scraper to mix together bread mix and ingredients. Spread batter into Parchment lined Medium Stoneware Bar Pan. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Cool completely.
    Using whisk, mix together milk and pudding until it begins to thicken. Use Small Mix N Scraper to fold cool whip into pudding mixture and add Sprinkle.
    Lift bread out of stone and place on cutting board. Cut pumpkin bars into small chunks using the Pizza Cutter. Place chunks in Trifle Bowl to cover bottom. Top with 1/3 of pudding mixture then 1/3 of the nuts. Repeat layers twice.

    Make gingerbread according to directions. Cool. Cut into 1/2 inch cubes.

    Mix pudding and milk. Add in pumpkin pie filling

    In Trifle Bowl, layer half of gingerbread, then half of pumpkin mix, then half of whipped topping. Repeat.

    Sprinkle Sweet Cinnamon Sprinkles over top.

    And another one! I'm sure you find something that'll work from one of these or a combination of them...

    Pumpkin Trifle
    2 to 3 cups leftover crumbled unfrosted spice cake, muffins or gingerbread
    2-1/2 cups cold milk
    1 can (15 ounces) solid-pack pumpkin
    2 packages (3.4 ounces each) instant butterscotch pudding mix
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1 teaspoon cinnamon plus spice blend
    2 cups heavy whipping cream
    Maraschino cherries, optional

    Set aside 1/4 cup of cake crumbs for topping. Divide remaining crumbs into four portions;
    sprinkle one portion into a trifle bowl or 3-qt. serving bowl. In a large mixing bowl,
    combine the milk, pumpkin, pudding mixes and spices; beat until smooth. Spoon half into the
    serving bowl. Sprinkle with a second portion of crumbs. In a small mixing bowl, beat cream
    until stiff peaks form; spoon half into bowl. Sprinkle with a third portion of crumbs.

    Top with the remaining pumpkin mixture, then remaining portion of crumbs and whipped cream.
    Sprinkle the reserved crumbs around the edge of bowl. Garnish with cherries if desired.
    Cover and chill at least 2 hours before serving.

    Yield: 12-15 servings.
