I remember when I was little my mom would make “Fancy dinners”. We’d often find some sort of layered dessert in the fridge for later. Hers were often pudding cups or jello treats, but we loved them and I always thought they were so cool.
This dessert was a total accident but I’m obsessed! Who wouldn’t want to treat their guests or family with a cool layered pumpkin treat?

Layered Parfait Instructions
Grab your favorite dessert shooter glasses or mason jars and begin layering the desserts.
Pumpkin, crunchy, cream and so on until the glass of choice is filled. Store in the fridge until ready to serve or serve immediately if you want the warm pumpkin layer! (my personal fav!)
If you don't want to layer, make the pumpkin layer, pour into the baking dish and top with the crunchy layer. Bake and then let cool. Top with the cream (optional) and serve in the dish! This was a hit at a party I recently went to and I didn't even use the cream layer.
