Mini Pumpkin Mousse Parfaits
:

Ingredients:

1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin

3 cups heavy cream

3/4 cup superfine sugar

1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Ginger snaps, for garnish

Directions

Combine pumpkin, 1 cup cream, sugar and spice in a medium saucepan. Simmer over medium heat for 5 minutes. Cool fully.

Whip remaining heavy cream and vanilla to soft peaks and fold into cooled pumpkin mixture.

After you make the mousse recipe, use these steps to create the mini parfaits:

{1} Add crumbled gingersnaps to bottom of mini parfait glasses
{2} Put the mousse in a large plastic bag. Snip off the corner and pipe a layer into the glasses
{3} Repeat step 2, but with Cool Whip
{4} Top with crushed gingersnaps
{5} Enjoy!
