PUMPKIN CHEESECAKE MOUSSE PIZZELLES


I know, we are in pumpkin overdrive! There are pumpkin recipes everywhere! When I check my Pinterest feed, every other pin is Pumpkin something. AND I LOVE IT!!! I adore everything pumpkin, except, believe it or not, pumpkin pie! Never been a fan. Yum  


My husband and I were recently at a Large Farmers market where they have lots of unique goodies. I was overjoyed to find the Pumpkin Spice Pizzelles (Italian Waffle Cookies). These things are amazing and only 23 calories each.

After asking hubs, "can we get them?", I was quickly inspired to make a healthy version of pumpkin mousse to top them with and of course add a little cool whip and candied pecans on top!! The result, yummy and light, just the right amount of sweetness and crunch pumpkin goodness!!! So EASY too!! Enjoy pumpkin time friends and fans!!!

INGREDIENTS
8 Pizzelle Cookies
4 containers of Greek Pumpkin Yogurt (this Oikos Pumpkin Pie is the BEST I've had)
1 package Cheesecake pudding Mix (I used sugar free)
1 8 oz tub cool whip
1 teasppon vanilla
Pumpkin Pie spice
Honey Roasted Pecan Pieces (I make homemade candied pecans at the Holidays and will share that recipe later on) 

DIRECTIONS
In a medium bowl, mix yogurt, vanilla and cheesecake pudding mix. Fold in cool whip. Place a large spoonful on each pizzelle, then put a dollop of cool whip on top and if desired, sprinkle with pumpkin pie spice and pecans. Note, make sure to assemble these Right before serving as the pizzelle with get soft. Enjoy!! These are super yummy!!

 Mmmm, another Tasty Tuesday!!
 If you are not a pumpkin fan, I bet this would work great with other Greek yogurt flavors as well!!

  13. It seems like every time I read your recipe posts, it's in the morning before I've had breakfast, and it makes me extra hungry! lol. I can't believe you don't like pumpkin pie! It's the only type of pie I do like.

  15. Ahhhhhhh Pizzelles!!!!!!!! YES!!!! I grew up eating homemade pizzelles from my grandmother. Her and my aunt (who is from Italy) used to make them all the time and the recipe got passed down to my mom. Gosh I love pizzelles and everyone always looks weird at me when I have them. (My mom always makes them at Christmas for us.)

  29. LOL. I love your ending image. It's so true that this time of year brings "everything pumpkin" and as yummy as it all is...it does get to be a bit overwhelming. These look so yummy though. I am quite certain that I would not be able to find those little cookies anywhere in my neighborhood...hell I can't even get a pumpkin spiced latte in my neighborhood. That's what I get for moving to such a small town. Thank you for always sharing such great recipes with #foodpornthursdays.
