This is a lighter alternative to pumpkin pie. I have not doubled this recipe, so I don't know how that would turn out, but I'd like to know if someone does.

4 parfaits


  • 1 (7 ounce) jar marshmallow creme

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

  • 1 tablespoon orange juice concentrate, thawed

  • 1 (14 ounce) can pumpkin puree

  • ¼ cup maple syrup

  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1 tablespoon orange juice concentrate, thawed

  • ¼ cup chopped toasted pecans

  • ¼ cup crushed gingersnaps


  1. Combine the marshmallow creme, cream cheese, and 1 tablespoon orange juice concentrate in a large bowl; beat with an electric hand mixer until smooth. Stir together the pumpkin, syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg, and 1 tablespoon orange juice in a separate bowl. Fold 1/4 cup of the marshmallow creme mixture into the pumpkin mixture.

  2. Beginning with the cream cheese mixture, layer 3 tablespoons of each mixture in each of four dessert cups. Chill in refrigerator for 2 hours. Top with pecans and gingersnaps before serving.
