Thanksgiving Favorite Pumpkin Dessert-My Family’s Pumpkin Supreme

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I share this Pumpkin Supreme recipe every November and every year my blog readers and morning show viewers tell me that they love it!  A bit different from pumpkin pie, this sweet treat will have you going in for seconds.  With a light whipped topping over a pumpkin and cream cheese layer that lays on top of a chilled delish graham cracker crust, this recipe satisfies a sweet tooth and then some.  A big thanks to my sister-in-law, Stephanie Harris who allows me to share this each year.  This scrumptious recipe was passed down to her through generations of her Texas family.  Here is the recipe below.  Happy Thanksgiving next week.  Be safe.  Be thankful.  Bless you all.
