Pumpkin Custard with Pumpkin Vanilla Creme

Pattie Turner


This is my take on Cracker Barrel's pumpkin custard with caramel mousse dessert. I think it is best if you use a soft baked cookie. I couldn't find a soft baked gingersnap so I used a molasses cookie by Archway and it was yummy. It is the perfect dessert for a chilly Fall night. I hope you enjoy!
