Shooters, eh??  No no, this is non-alcoholic related {my apologies} but I promise you just as fun and delicious!  I know the next thing you’re thinking…another pumpkin recipe??  Really??  Yes I know.  But in my defense, pumpkin rocks, it’s still Fall and I happened to STILL have 3 cans of pumpkin leftover from my massive hoarding adventure.
These little shooters are the most delicious little treats ever and, if you’re better at layering the cups than I am {sigh}, turn out to be perfect desserts for holiday parties.  Lucky for you they’re only 138 calories for the entire glass!
You can’t beat that.
Plus they took little to no effort {shh just don’t tell your guests} and these were super quick to make, no baking required!  I wasn’t sure how I would like the combination of pumpkin and vanilla when I first read this recipe, but to be honest it was really great.  Next time I might play around with a pie using the same flavors.  Oh and if you don’t like gingersnap cookies as topping, feel free to substitute with graham crackers.
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!

Annnnd because this is probably the last pumpkin recipe I’ll be posting since winter is officially approaching, I wanted to take a look back at all my pumpkin dishes over the past season and share my favorites!  I didn’t realize how many I actually I made.  Obsessed much??
Enjoy lovelies!
Ok, ok so my pumpkin sugar cookies aren’t really made with actual pumpkin, but they sure resemble little pumpkins!  I decided that counts.  This was the first year making Fall recipes for my blog and I’ve found some seriously delicious recipes this year.  Can’t wait to see what recipes I find to share for this Christmas holiday!
