How to Toast Nuts

Toasting nuts adds crunch and intensifies their flavor. To toast nuts in the oven, spread nuts in single layer in shallow baking pan. Bake at 350°F for 8 to 10 min. or until golden brown, stirring occasionally. To toast nuts on the stovetop, place nuts in ungreased skillet. Cook on medium heat until golden brown, stirring frequently. To toast nuts in the microwave, place up to 1 cup of nuts in a microwaveable shallow dish. Microwave on HIGH until fragrant and crisp, stirring every 30 sec.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have made these twice now, once to try the recipe and loved it,not a heavy dessert like a pie... I have made these twice now, once to try the recipe and loved it,not a heavy dessert like a pie would be. then tried it again only putting them into cupcake papercups for easy serving plus thought I had vanilla pudding and went to make it it was cheescake flavor, use it anyways and delious. Although the paper cups work out, I think I would use the foil one as the butter soaked up in the paper. I also might just try placing a ginger snap in the bottom instead of the crumbs think it will work well. These were a hit. It will be a regular anytime of the year.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The dessert was ok, not wonderful as a whole. The dessert was ok, not wonderful as a whole. If I ever make it again I wont toast the pecans, there is no need and I did not like the taste of the toasted. The crust was so/so. I had never had gingersnaps before and they were a small challenge to work with. I am wondering if graham crack crumbs would have been just as good (and cheaper)? The saving grace was the filling. The pumpkin cheesecake, vanilla pudding mix and cool whip were fabulous together. I did not use cinnamon and nutmeg, I just used Pumpkin pie spice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've made this the last 2 or 3 Thanksgiving and I have yet to find a person who didn't love it! I've made this the last 2 or 3 Thanksgiving and I have yet to find a person who didn't love it! You can lower the calories several ways (low fat topping, sugar-free pudding). I also oomph it up a little by; A - using 1 box of vanilla and 1 box of pumpkin pudding, and, B - using Trader Joe's triple ginger snap cookies for the crust. Those of you using graham cracker crusts STOP! Ginger really compliments pumpkin!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good pumpkin dessert but very rich. Good pumpkin dessert but very rich. I used cinnamon graham crackers instead of the gingersnaps and 1 Tablespoon pumpkin pie spice instead of the spices the recipe called for. Next time I will add a bit more pumpkin pie spice. I think it enhances the pumpkin. I did not toast the pecans, but let people add their own as some don't like nuts. For me, the nuts sealed the YUM! Overall, a repeater!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dad is diabetic and I wanted him to have this too. My dad is diabetic and I wanted him to have this too. I knocked off just a little over 100 calories and cut out 3/4 of the sugar by making changes. I used light butter, Neufchatel cheese, half the sugar, skim milk, sugar free pudding, sugar free cool whip, and using low fat graham crackers instead of ginger snaps. And the three 6-7 yr olds begged for more!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Made it for a church meeting. Made it for a church meeting. I felt it was a bit on the heavy side. Used Neufchatel cheese may cut back to just one next time. Didn't use the nuts but sprinkled crushed ginger snaps on top. May try putting nuts on half of it. Pumpkin pudding mix might be a good add in as suggested; or a little pumpkin pie spice in the vanilla pudding mixture.
