Thanksgiving Desserts and Pumpkin Cheesecake Mini Trifle

By November 21, 2011April 15th, 2019Baking, Dessert, Holidays, Holidays, Mini Desserts

Trifles, in my opinion, are the easiest most inexpensive dessert you can make….they can be made ahead, the ideas are endless and most importantly they look like you spent hours on them, when it really only takes you less than 15 minutes. These Pumpkin Cheesecake Mini Trifles are perfect for Thanksgiving,  but you could certainly make them for Christmas or even a special get-together.

I think using unusual containers adds to the creativeness of the Trifle. These Pumpkin Cheesecake Mini Trifles are served in glass votive candle holders that we found at Goodwill.

Now, because we can’t have just one dessert for Thanksgiving, I’ve put together a delicious round-up for you of Thanksgiving Desserts
