I bought cool whip to top my contribution to the family Thanksgiving this year and left it in my refrigerator. Luckily, my mom and aunt provided plenty of whipped topping, but come on, Emily. Fail whale.
So, I had an 8oz thing of Cool Whip and nothing to do with it. Until I found Gina’s No-bake Pumpkin Cheesecake. And I had some pumpkin puree frozen in the freezer. And I figured, what the hell? Just because Thanksgiving is over doesn’t mean that I need to say goodbye to pumpkin deliciousness.
So, I whipped up a pumpkin cheesecake. And honestly? It’s tasty (I’ve only tasted the filling – but graham cracker crust is a given). Not totally cheesecake like, but good. And won’t Mr. B be excited when he comes home to find that dinner’s in the crockpot AND I made dessert while working and tending to T-Mac? I mean, throw in a side dish and a load of laundry and that’s almost worthy of winning the Wife of November 29th Award (a year is far too ambitious).
And no, this is not a cookie, but I’m linking it up to Kim’s Dare to DIY party today anyway. I’m a rule breaker, what can I say? Hop on over to Kim’s blog to take part in the cookie (and “cheesecake” cheater) party.
