Who says treats have to be complicated? With these easy pumpkin desserts, you can have a fun snack on the table for the kids in no time.

Pumpkin pie is something you buy from the bakery (or maybe your grocer’s freezer), right? It’s something you serve on Thanksgiving, a dessert just for fall. Right?

It doesn’t have to be that way, especially if you and your kids are head over heels for pumpkin pie like my kids and I are. Pumpkin pie can be an any time of year thing.

Armed with an easy recipe and an out-of-the-box idea, you can have a delicious pumpkin pie-inspired dessert in minutes. There’s no baking necessary, and the kids will love it (especially the pie crust dippers).

How? You start with pumpkin pie mix and stir in cinnamon-sugar, brown sugar and vanilla. Then serve the pudding-like mixture with super easy, two-ingredient “crackers” made from pie crust and cinnamon-sugar.

Top it all off with whipped cream and grab a spoon. You can thank me later!

One serving note: You can see these “shooters” are in cups. That’s because I think custard cups are easier to work with and are simpler for little hands to eat from.
