Easy Pumpkin Torte

It is pumpkin time! For the next month, anything pumpkin is bound to be considered in season. If you want something other than pumpkin pie, try this easy pumpkin torte. For this recipe, ginger snap cookie crumbs give a zing to the crust. You can use graham crackers instead – or you can mix the two together if you’d rather not have as much zing.

This easy pumpkin torte is a four-layer dessert, but it’s not nearly as hard as it sounds. You bake the first two layers together, mix up the pumpkin, pudding, cool whip and milk and cinnamon and layer it as your third layer. The top is a layer of cool whip. Make it a day or two ahead, and you’re all set.

For the second layer, you can double the recipe if you want a thicker torte. You’ll need to double those ingredients for the Cream Cheese (2nd) Layer, of course.
