Pumpkin pie is often one of the Thanksgiving desserts that families look forward to every year. But if your family is looking for an updated version of this classic confection, the pumpkin toffee crunch trifle may be the answer. When Darius Fisher showed me a Vine of the revamped pumpkin pie, I couldn’t wait to tell my mother about making one for my family’s Thanksgiving feast.
This visually appealing dessert features all the sweet and spicy flavors of a pumpkin pie, along with the crunch of decadent toffee bits. There is also granola in the recipe. So, while your family is enjoying a new take on a pumpkin dessert, they’re also getting the fiber and heart-healthy benefits of oats.
Pumpkin bread, heavy cream, cinnamon and sugar are also used to complete the dessert. This trifle serves as a complete dessert, since it can be served with or without ice cream.
Pumpkin is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and can contribute to weight loss. Pumpkin is also a significant source of beta carotene, which is essential for eye health. The cinnamon in the dessert is beneficial for lowering blood sugar.
