Gluten Free Pumpkin Mousse

All the kids are back at school, Labor day is over, September has begun. It’s still 90F here, but I’m calling fall. And with fall comes FOOTBALL!! Oh, wait, that has absolutely nothing to do with this blog. I mean, with fall comes PUMPKIN!!! I’ve already got a few gorgeous pumpkin recipes on the blog, but this one takes the cake (ha! Puns!). My daughters are incredibly creative in the kitchen. A couple of weeks ago I shared Janohah’s Tofu Parmesan, today I’m sharing a dessert, made by my second oldest daughter, Jael. This pumpkin mousse is absolute genius. It requires no cooking, can be made in about 5 minutes, and is one of the lightest and loveliest desserts you’ll try. Jael serves it on Bisquick shortcakes (you can get the recipe for those from Betty Crocker by clicking here) but it would be great on it’s own or with pumpkin muffins. She uses a 15oz can of pumpkin, a 14oz can of sweetened condensed milk and about 2 cups of Cool Whip. Fold the Cool Whip in gradually, you may find you want a little more or a little less. The spices are also to taste, some people like a lot of flavor, some just  a little. Her measurements give you a nice pumpkin pie flavor without being too strong.
