These adorable pumpkin pie parfaits are like a pumpkin cheese cake made with layers of cream cheese, crushed graham crackers, and of course, heavenly whipped cream. If you want a special fall or Thanksgiving dessert that will put a smile on everyone's face, this is almost certainly the one.



Special equipment:
Ten 8-ounce Mason jars
  1. Combine the pumpkin puree, cream cheese, brown sugar and 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice in a large bowl with an electric mixer until thoroughly combined, about 2 minutes.
  2. Whisk the heavy cream and confectioners' sugar in a second large bowl or in the bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk attachment, until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. 
  3. Layer the crushed graham crackers, pumpkin cream cheese mixture, and whipped cream in ten 8-ounce Mason jars. Repeat the layers until the jars are filled and contain at least 2 layers of each ingredient. Sprinkle a pinch of pumpkin pie spice over each parfait, if desired. Serve chilled.
