During this time of year, I can’t seem to leave the grocery store without throwing a couple cans of pumpkin puree in my cart. I get so excited to try new recipes in preparation for Thanksgiving. If you are thinking of making a pumpkin dessert this year, other than a classic pie, try these mini pumpkin tiramisu cups. They’re so easy to make and are perfect for any Thanksgiving gathering!!

3. Lightly brush the lady fingers with the espresso until dampened on both sides. Be careful not to oversaturate or they will fall apart. Set aside.

5. Layer 1 soaked ladyfinger on the bottom of each glass. You will have to break them in half for them to fit. Generously spoon or pipe the pumpkin layer over the ladyfingers. Repeat layering a second time to fill the glasses. When done, spoon or pipe a dollop of the leftover whipped topping directly onto the pumpkin layer. Sprinkle with crumbled gingersnaps.
