If you are a fan of pumpkin and looking for an easy jar dessert to serve this holiday season this Pumpkin Cheesecake Parfait will be perfect. I love to serve up jar desserts when entertaining as they always catch everyone’s attention. Parfaits in jars are always so simple and I can usually put them together in just a few minutes time. These Pumpkin Cheesecake Parfaits will be perfect for one of our upcoming holiday parties. Layers of pumpkin cheesecake yumminess. When I made these Parfaits and our Pumpkin Cheesecake Truffles for desserts last week they disappeared so quickly that I had kiddos fighting over the last jar and truffle (that happens around here a bit to often, ha ha).
