Gingerbread Trifle Pumpkin Dessert

I'd have to say Fall is my favorite season.  Perhaps because I've lived in New England all of my life, I take it for granted that people everywhere enjoy the changing seasons - the changing colors of the leaves, kids going back to school and Halloween.  When I was a kid, people used to rake and then burn their leaves that fell from the trees - but I guess now the EPA has put an end to that with environmental conservation laws and air pollution.  Yet I can still remember that smell of burning leaves in the air that meant fall was here.

We celebrate my granddaughter's birthday this October.  Instead of a traditional birthday cake, we enjoyed Butterscotch Pumpkin Gingerbread Trifle.  Gingerbread isn't only for Christmas desserts!

Fall Treats

This delightful easy fall treat dessert compote was made using box cake mix, boxed Butterscotch Pudding and Pumpkin Pie filling.

For an extra treat, top with crushed Heath  Bar Crunch Bits 'O Brickle Toffee Bits and Whipped Topping!

This quick pudding dessert is a treat for any Halloween party and would be magnificent idea for Thanksgiving desserts too!
