I think I am in love with Thanksgiving. I shared this weekend that we are hosting Thanksgiving again this year. While it's not our first year hosting, there's something extra special about this year for me. I can't wait to spend the day cooking and preparing for dinner with our friends and family. I love all of the traditional thanksgiving recipes but dessert will always be my favorite meal of the day, no matter what time of year it is. Specifically, I love pie, especially topped with?Cool Whip!
For Thanksgiving, I look forward to pumpkin pie. My brother and I have always loved it. There may have been a time or two that a slice of pumpkin pie was our breakfast on the way to school. But as much as I love the traditional slice of pumpkin pie and Cool Whip, this year I wanted to brave the waters and try something new.
I love the way cooking shows always call something deconstructed when their recipe didn't turn out quite like they planned. This is not the case for this deconstructed pumpkin pie, it is very intentional and very delicious. This is such an easy dessert to make but it'll be sure to impress all of the guests you're hosting! Start by picking up a few pies at your local Walmart and grab some Cool Whip right next to the pies!
Then continue?by cooking the pie(s) according to the directions on the box. Allow the pies to cool slightly. While they are cooling, grab your containers, I chose some mason jars! Add a layer of Cool Whip to the bottom of your jar.
Then scoop out the pumpkin pie filling into the jar as the next later. Where you took the filling from, use your spoon to gently crush the crust into smaller pieces. Then add those as the next layer. Finally add the last layer of Cool Whip and then top with some finely crushed pieces from the crust.
The best part of these mini desserts is that they can easily be shared! Grab a few and share with coworkers at lunch or take some to the new neighbor as a welcome gift! These are perfect for spreading some love to those around you. I love the idea of getting to share a meal with someone even if you're not sitting in the same room. This quick gesture is sure to bring you closer.
You could easily turn this into a festive party or wedding favor too! Right now until December 10th you can save $1 on Mrs. Smith's Pies when you purchase with Cool Whip.
