Pumpkin Cream Cheese Dessert

Rated as 4.51 out of 5 Stars

"This light and delicious three layered pumpkin dessert is a nice alternative to pumpkin pie. An easy to make graham cracker crust forms the foundation for cream cheese and pumpkin layers topped with whipped cream. This recipe contains raw eggs. We recommend that pregnant women, young children, the elderly and the infirm do not consume raw eggs."
