My mom would kill me if she knew I was posting this, she gave it to me and said "take it to your grave" but it's too good not to share with my fellow pumpkin lovers!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This pumpkin dessert should be called layers of pumpkin pie happiness! The graham cracker crust is sweet and crunchy. There's a hint of tanginess from the cream cheese layer on top. Egg whites make the pumpkin filling light, smooth and creamy. This would be an easy dessert for your holiday meal or when you're craving something pumpkin. Easy and yummy!
