Quick and Easy Pumpkin Mousse

During the holiday season I’m always inspired to try new recipes. After the hearty Thanksgiving meal and the glorious abundance of desserts, I thought I would try a dessert that was a little on the light side but still incorporate the holiday theme foods.

This is my first time creating this recipe and it would be a great alternative to your traditional pies for holiday desserts. The textures and flavors really come together after chilling in the refrigerator and the texture had turned from whip cream, into this deliciously creamy, silky smooth mousse. I definitely recommend making this dessert the day before you plan to serve it.

Normally I see this dessert served with ginger snaps but my husband is not a huge fan of those so I tried it with Molasses cookies.  It was delicious!
