On to the deliciousness that is this final EEK WEEKS project! A bowl full of fall goodness...gingerbread and pumpkin trifle!
Now I'm no Betty Crocker by any means, but I do enjoy a good dessert and I especially love making them when they are super, duper easy! I've dumbed down this recipe from Paula Deen and it is pure heaven.
I followed Paula's recipe but substituted six vanilla pudding cups for the cook and serve vanilla pudding. I also added a teaspoon of vanilla extract to the whipped topping a la Sandra Lee. I've made this trifle several times and I always come home with rave reviews and an empty dish.
If you want to dumb it down even more (which I've done) or you are in a time crunch, buy gingerbread or pumpkin bread from your local bakery or grocery store. It's just as delicious, looks just as fabulous, and saves you time.
Coming up this week: Sutch an Inspiration, Kason's Frankenstein costume, and some fall decor. :) I can't believe this is the last week of October. It has flown by and I have to admit I'm going to miss seeing all of the black and orange around blogland. Have a super week!
I'll be linking up to some of my favorite parties!
