Potluck Pumpkin Torte
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 25 min. + chilling
Out of 5 stars I give this recipe 6 stars. It is excellent and beautiful ! Even those who don't like pumpkin like this dessert.
Ive made this twice now. It it is on my favorite list of pumpkin recipes. I do a thick gingersnap crust and for the pumpkin layer I just do one envelope of gelatin in a quarter cup of water and I use pure pumpkin not mix so add 1 1/4 c. sugar, 2 tsp of cinnamon, 1 teaspoon of ginger and 1/2 tsp of cloves. Everything else I follow the recipe. So good!!!
I had a friend who made this for my birthday. Ever since then I have loved it loved it!!!!!!??????
I have made this several times and everyone loves it. I garnish the top with crushed toasted pecans.
I made this torte for my work potluck, and it was a huge hit!! I even had a co worker ask me to make one for her!! What a lovely recipe, so easy and good. Exactly what you need during the holidays
Made this several times, as is, tasting delicious, easy to make. Everyone liked it.
I never buy pumpkin pie filling only pumpkin puree. Added pumpkin pie spice and didn't use all the evaporated milk called for. I also didn't put sugar in the crust as graham wafer crumbs are sweet enough without it. I agree with fam4th, always read through any recipe before you make it.
My advice to others is first read the recipe just before making it! Especially note how much milk and pumpkin puree to add. And if you do what I did and use whole cans of pumpkin and evap milk, you'll then have to spend much time on rescuing the torte. I came through in the end, but it took too much time. Oh and remember that the recipe needs flavored pumpkin puree, not the plain.
I have used a similar recipe, and wanted to give this a try. There was only one adjustment made to the recipe. I did add pumpkin pie spice to the filling. Everyone loved it at Thanksgiving and the dessert looked great!
This was a really great dessert. Nice and light and very flavorful. I did let my pumpkin filling cool for quite a while and did not add my whipped topping until everything was totally cold. Makes a beautiful presentation.
