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 it!

This may replace pumpkin pie on your holiday table. The pumpkin custard is similar to pumpkin pie filling. It's light, creamy, and super easy to make. There's just the right balance of sweetness and fall spices. Gingersnap cookies add a little crunch and are the perfect complement to the creamy custard. Spiced Cool Whip on top makes for a beautiful presentation. Try this if you want pumpkin pie but don't want to make a whole pie. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
