Pumpkin Cheesecake No Bake Parfaits from Walking on Sunshine Recipes promo

Pumpkin and Cheesecake combined!
That's right, you read that correctly.  This recipe is the best of both worlds for me because I love anything pumpkin and I love cheesecake.  This is an easy dessert recipe, as most of mine are, because really who has a lot of time to cook and bake these days?  This is also a no bake dessert and will make a great addition to your dessert table this holiday season.

I love using mason jars to serve a no bake dessert in.  I've used mason jars this summer to make my No Bake Pudding Desserts.  It's easy to make the desserts the day before if you're preparing for company using mason jars like I did for our daughter's bridal shower.  These desserts are great for every day snacking too!  They're easy to store in the refrigerator and the kids can just grab an easy treat after school.  


Chopped pecans on top add just the right amount of crunch to the recipe.
