Pumpkin Trifles

Pumpkin Trifles Recipe

This easy-to-assemble dessert can be put together by even the youngest member of your family and still be the hit of the party. Plus, the combination of pumpkin, caramel, and nuts are autumn personified. Remember, though, the better the quality of the ingredients, the better the end result.–Matthew Mead
