Layered Pumpkin Cream Pie !
For 20 years now I have been making the most wonderful layered pumpkin cream pie. I found the recipe in a magazine. Yep. It was an instant hit 20 years ago and it has been requested every year since. I have varied it a bit ever so slightly over the years. Another great thing is you can make this pie in under a half hour! Today I am sharing the recipe version that I believe turns out the very best. So are you ready for the most amazing creamy pumpkin pie that will definitely make your senses go wild?
I’ve got it!
MmmMmmm Doesn’t that look yummy?!!
Here is the recipe that can get this wonderful pie on your table:

You know you want a bite right now!!
AND… I wanted to try something new this time so I also did a version of this pie in a jar. This was my first attempt at this and didn’t turn out perfect but it tasted awesome and is a fun twist to this pumpkin pie favorite.
For the pie in the jar I made my own graham cracker crumbs with butter and crackers. Then I layered the jar just like the pie doing two layers of each. Doesn’t the pie tag look cute in the jar?
So now for the cute pie tags!
Here they are:
There are several ways these can be presented. I put mine on skewers and tied a 3 inch piece of tulle to the skewer. Then they can be stuck in the pie!
