I have a confession.
I don't like pumpkin pie.
Generally, when I first mention this, I get jaws-dropped owl-eyed stares of disbelief. You don't like WHAT?! Occasionally, this is followed by "You need to try my grandmother's/mom's/friend's/that restaurant's pumpkin pie and you will definitely change your mind." But I have tried the other pies, and I have not changed my mind. It's a texture-taste combination that I just can't seem to like. But aside from pumpkin pie, I do like (and occasionally love) anything and everything pumpkin-flavored: pumpkin spice coffee, chai tea, pumpkin rolls, seeds, bread, muffins, and candies...and now I have discovered this: pumpkin cheesecake trifles.
I think they'd be totally worth the post-dairy-consumption stomachache...which I would probably sleep off in my annual post-Thanksgiving-dinner nap. Alternatively, I might give this recipe a try. Yum.
