Thank you for reviewing this recipe.



These were wonderful. You know you baked something delicious when your own step-son says it's fantastic. Including the guests. They were gone in no time. This will be a new tradition.

My favorite pumpkin dessert

I slightly modified the recipe, replacing the gingersnaps with graham cracker crumbs, and I top them with whipped cream instead of sour cream and chocolate. My family and friends love these and I often get requests for the recipe when I make them. Even my children who are picky eaters love them.

A new favorite...

I have made these 3 times since Thanksgiving! Everyone loves them and they are so fun and easy to make. I top them with homemade whip instead of sour cream and decorate! For Thanksgiving I bought some green/red icing and drew holly leaves/berries on each one. A big hit!
