Pumpkin Cheesecake Trifles

There are quite a lot of cheesecake recipes on this website. Yeah, rock it. I love me some cheesecakes. Especially little trifle ones, perfect little portions {that you can have two of}. And I have been ridiculously obsessed with pumpkin this season, but I don't hear any complaining...

Pumpkin Cheesecake Trifles
Makes 4-6 Servings
12 Gingersnaps/Graham crackers, crushed
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup pure pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 large tub (12 oz.) whipped topping (Cool Whip), thawed, divided

In a medium bowl, combine cookie crumbs and butter. Divide the crumbs into the bottoms of your trifle glasses. Gently press crumbs to form an even layer of crust.

In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat cream cheese until smooth. Add pumpkin, vanilla, sugar and pumpkin pie spice. Beat until well combined and creamy.Use a spatula to fold in half of the whipped topping. Gently combine ingredients until no streaks remain.

To Assemble the Trifles: Pipe or spoon a layer of pumpkin cheesecake onto the Biscoff crust followed by a layer of whipped topping. Repeat layers until your trifle reaches the top of your glass or jar.

Store trifles in the refrigerator until ready to serve. If desired, garnish with cookie crumbs.

Note: When I made this the first time, I used little plastic cups from Ikea, and it worked wonders.
