Pumpkin Pie Sandwiches

I am so excited for the Spring. I can’t wait until it gets warmer here in the ‘Burgh, but I have to admit, my favorite season is Fall. I love the colors, the clothes, and particularly the food! So when the sun comes back and the snow is gone, and I find myself getting nostalgic for Autumn, I whip up a batch of these healthy little Pumpkin Pie Sandwiches. They’ve got all the frozen yumminess of a warm-weather treat, with all the flavors of Thanksgiving.  And, they are ridiculously easy to make!

Pumpkin Pie Sandwiches

  • 1 8-ounce tub of fat free Cool Whip
  • 2 packs (12 full sheets) of reduced fat honey graham crackers
  • 1 8-ounce can of organic pumpkin pie mix
  • Room in your freezer for a small cookie sheet
  1. Break up the graham crackers in half so that you have 24 squares while the Cool Whip comes to room temperature.
  2. Mix 1/2 of the can of pumpkin pie mix with the Cool Whip. Taste. If you like a stronger pumpkin flavor, keep adding until you’re happy.
  3. Scoop the Cool Whip/pumpkin mixture on to 12 graham cracker squares. Cover the mixture with the remaining 12 squares, setting them gently atop the Cool Whip mixture. Do not press them down!
  4. Transfer the sandwiches to a cookie sheet and quickly put in the freezer until hard. Enjoy!

Vegan? Instead of using Cool Whip, let a pint of vanilla Tofutti get soft (not runny!). Working quickly, mix the desired amount of pumpkin into the Tofutti, and scoop onto the crackers. Make your sandwiches, and freeze for a totally vegan winter-meets-summer treat!

    Molly, my friend just made these for us, and they are awesome! She did hers minus the pumpkin with peanut butter instead- love it! Also, all growing up, my mom let us eat frosting (from the jar/can) with graham crackers and its still one of my favorite snacks, though not quite as healthy! Xoxo!

    Oh wow. Yum. The vegan version sounds even better than the non-veg!

    I’m with you Molly – Autumn is the best! My boyfriend and I are suckers for pumpkin flavored treats, so I can’t wait to give this recipe a whirl!

    Aw, I LOVE pumpkin (and Autumn, too!)…maybe its genetic or something. :-) I will definitely try them. Actually, after our Weight Watchers meeting we have a nice healthy dinner—maybe I’ll make these for a dessert!
    Oooh, Katie, the peanut butter ones sound yummy as well- but definitely not as healthy :-)
