Pumpkin cream whip

I am always looking to do something different with pumpkin. This is what we had for Thanksgiving dessert.
It is sweet but not overly sweet and has a mild pumpkin flavor and the gingersnaps go oh so well with this.

If you want more of a pumpkin flavor in the whip, add more of the pie mix, one teaspoon at a time, mixing in between each addition.

And that wonderful juice that you’ll have in the bottom of the container, after draining the pumpkin,don’t discard it. Freeze it and use it in any number of dishes, like soups, stews, sauces etc.
If you have any left this whip freezes very well.

Add some of the heavy cream to the cream cheese “about ¼ “ and beat slowly, then slowly pour the rest of the cream in while the mixer is on low. Then turn the mixer up to high and beat. Once you see it starts to thicken a bit stop mixing. Scrape down the sides often.

Refrigerate till you are ready to use this.

TO MAKE THE GARNISH:
8
In a dry hot pan put the cookies and pumpkin spice, as soon as you put the ginger snaps in the pan turn down the heat as low as it will go.

Stir this often so as not to burn it.

Put some of the thickened pumpkin on a paper plate.

Pipe in the pumpkin whip.

Dust with the ginger snaps, by putting some of the ginger snaps into a small strainer and shaking it over the dessert. Do it just as you would dust with powdered sugar.
