So here is my special secret dessert for an easy, semi-homemade dessert using one of my favorite treats.
Here is a recipe for Twinkie Tiramisu or Layered Pumpkin Dessert (I think the Tiramisu sounds more exotic!)
1 package ( 8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 container (8 oz) Whip topping, thawed, divided (like cool whip)
2 packages (3.4 oz each) instant vanilla pudding
1 can (15 oz) pumpkin
1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice (plus extra to sprinkle on top)
1 cup milk
Slice Twinkies in half lengthwise and place cream side up, in single layer in 9 x 13 inch baking dish.
Using Mixer, blend together cream cheese, powdered sugar and 1/2 of whipped topping until smooth.
Spread evenly over Twinkies.
Combine pudding mixes, pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice and milk. Whisk until well blended and layer over cream cheese mixture.
Carefully soread reamining whipped topping over pumpkin.
Lightly sprinkle with pumpkin pie spice.
Refrigerate several hours and then ENJOY!!!
