Approximately 12 servings


  • 1 box (14.5 oz) Betty Crocker® gingerbread cake mix, baked according to directions on the box
  • 1 (15 oz) can pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 (5.1 oz) package instant butterscotch pudding mix
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 (12 oz) container frozen whipped topping, thawed or homemade whipped cream
  • 3/4 of a (10 oz) bag of ginger snap cookies or about 25 -30 cookies

In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine the pumpkin, sweetened condensed milk, butterscotch pudding mix, the milk, the spices and the brown sugar and whisk until mixture is smooth and thickens. (About 1- 2 minutes) Set mixture aside. Cut the gingerbread into 2-3 inch squares. Layer your trifle bowl or large clear glass bowl with half of the gingerbread. Then crumble 5-6 cookies over the gingerbread layer. Layer in about 1/2 of the whipped topping, then layer in half of the pumpkin topping. Repeat again with the gingerbread layer, a few crumbled cookies, the whipped topping and then ending with the pumpkin layer on top and a few crumbled cookies.   Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least and hour or two before serving.
