Kitchen Confessions: Pumpkin Spice Parfait

Everywhere we look we see pumpkin. And we're okay with that. Because we are all....


We are most definitely all about the pumpkin everything. Pumpkin is one of our favorite flavors, and not just in the Fall. We love pumpkin year round, but it's so nice that this time of year pumpkins are in season and we can enjoy it even more.

The moment it turned Fall-ish (and because it is the South I'm totally going off the calendar and not the weather because today it's 90 degrees!), we dusted off our cookbooks and bookmarked some of our favorite pumpkin recipes to put on our menu.  From appetizers to delicious desserts the pumpkin options are endless!


I love love love the yummy pumpkin bread recipe Carrie Beth shared last year. I've been majorly craving it for months, but haven't had the time to make it. Sometimes I just need something quick and easy to satisfy pumpkin craving. I stumbled upon these Krusteaz baking mixes and let's just say we are slightly addicted.


They are so yummy! I love that they only require a few ingredients, and they are usually things I already have on hand. I can make a quick and yummy dessert that everyone loves with very little effort. Now that's my kind of pumpkin everything!


Over the weekend I needed a dessert for a dinner, but with sports and other activities didn't have a lot of time to make something extravagant. After doing a little brainstorming I came up with these easy Pumpkin Spice Parfaits.


Because I already had some Krusteaz Pumpkin Spice Quick Bread on hand it cut my prep time down to nothing. Not to mention so. much. YUM!!

If you want a little pumpkin spice fix, or need a quick dessert option for the upcoming holidays this is definitely a recipe to put on your radar.

Pumpkin Spice Parfait Recipe. So easy and so yummy! Can make in just a few simple steps! Great dessert for fall and holiday parties.
