Light and creamy, a rival for pumpkin pie. The gingersnaps are a great accent. My husband had always requested pumpkin pie until this came along!

Patrice is right, this recipe would really take the place of pumpkin pie! The pumpkin mousse is light, creamy, and has the same spices as pumpkin spice. This can be eaten as a mousse but would also make a tasty dip for gingersnaps. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
