mouth-watering Frozen Pumpkin Mousse Tart

Fall is my favorite.

Oranges. Reds. Yellows.

Pumpkins. Falling Leaves. Cool weather.

What is there not to like?

I am a pumpkin spice lover. Pumpkin Pie. Pumpkin Spice Latte. Pumpkin Donuts.

I am a pumpkin girl.

My go-to dessert at Thanksgiving is pumpkin pie. LOVE it!

But sometimes you need something less heavy after the big meal. That’s why I’m bringing you this Frozen Pumpkin Mousse Tart recipe. Delish!

It’s not heavy, but oh so yummy.

I can’t wait to hear what you think!!

Frozen Pumpkin Mousse Tart


1 ½ C Pumpkin puree (not pie filling)
2 tsp Pumpkin pie spice
1 T Sugar
2 ½ C TruWhip Whip Cream
1 sheet Prepared Pie Crust, thawed
½ tsp each Cinnamon and Sugar combined for serving


Preheat oven to 375

1. Lightly spray tart pan. Fit pie crust into pan and push up halfway up sides of pan. If using a rectangular tart pan, cut excess off the sides with extra dough and paste onto the short ends of pan.
