I blame my dessert coma on this simple no bake pumpkin pie kids recipe. If you like pumpkin pie with whipped cream on top, you’ll love this. We tried presenting it in several ways: ramekins, ice cream cones and ultimately in a ready-made graham cracker pie crust. The pie isn’t pictured and I was told not to tamper with her “staging” before photographing, so they are as she intended. It is a kids recipe, after all!
After being refrigerated, the pie will slice nicely though it doesn’t set up as “hard” as a cooked pumpkin pie. Serve it as just a mousse with whipped cream on top, if you like. We used fresh whipped cream made possible by this gadget (though I admit it felt this time like it took forever).
A little goes a long way and your kids will love that they can pretty much make it from start to finish (other than you opening the can of pumpkin and monitoring mess, of course).
