Pumpkin Pudding Pie in a Jar

It’s kind of a cumbersome name but I just couldn’t think of anything better…

First whip 1 cup of whipping cream until thick. Stir together 4 Tablespoons of powdered sugar and 1 Tablespoon of instant clear gel (to stabilize cream). Add to whipped cream along with 1 teaspoon of vanilla. Whip until very thick. *You can also use an 8oz tub of whipped topping.

Cream 4 oz softened cream cheese

1/4 cup butter

1/2 cup powdered sugar

Mix until smooth

Beat 1 3/4 cups milk with one 3 oz box of pumpkin spice instant pudding mix until thick.

Mix together the pudding and cream cheese mixture.

Fold in whipped cream.

Fill the bottoms of 6-8 half-pint, wide-mouthed jars with cookie crumbs. I think graham crackers or ginger snaps would be best.

Top with mousse and chill for at least 1 hour before serving.
