Pumpkin Pie Parfaits have a luscious, creamy pumpkin pie center with a little added cookie crumble for good measure. The Golden Oreo, with a little added pumpkin pie spice, is the perfect complement in both taste and texture. Occasionally, I’ll add some pecans to that crumble as well.
I feel like we don’t get enough pumpkin pie. It seems unfair that such a delicious treat is only really served in the fall and maybe at Thanksgiving and Christmas. What’s up with that? If I were in charge (a scary thought, I’ll admit), I would ensure that pumpkin pie was served year-round. In that spirit, this recipe for pumpkin pie parfaits is a great snack to enjoy in every season.
This is a great recipe to serve at dinner parties. Guests love it, and it’s a darn good looking dish too. “Pretty” and “delicious” are about the best adjectives you could ask for in a dinner party dessert. Give it a try and let me know how it goes!
When to Make: This recipe is best prepared the day of serving. I like to make it a few hours before I plan to serve it and let it sit in the fridge. Spending a couple hours in the fridge helps the dish to settle and solidify a little bit. This makes it extremely convenient for parties. I can make the dessert ahead of time and not have to worry about it when I’ve got a million other things on my mind.
Serving: If you don’t have parfait glasses, there are a bunch of other creative choices you could make. The easiest one is just to serve these parfaits in smaller dessert dishes like trifle dishes. That works and is super simple. For a more creative twist, try serving this recipe in mason jars or martini glasses!
Because you serve this recipe in individual servings, make sure to know how many guests you’ll be hosting. It would be awkward to be one parfait short!
