I made this dessert and I cut every corner to bring it in lower fat, lower sugar. Sugar free pudding, unsweetened almond milk, Domino light, cool whip light. decreased the butter in the crust and It still was delicious. I have made it 3 more times and everyone loves it. An added bonus, it is also easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding recipe! Outstanding recipe! Made this for the first time and it was very well received for Thanksgiving! Nothing left but a few crumbs. Made it again the next day so we could have it with turkey leftovers! Since ginger snaps vary in size, follow the cup measurement (1-1/3 cups) instead of cookie numbers. We need a chocolate version for Christmas!

Made this with a few changes, I reversed the order of the fillings and omitted the final layer of topping, I crushed up some pecan brittle and sprinkled on top, pretty on the table and very tasty

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Breezy and Delicious I have made this twice this week it was easy and delicious and it did not take long to prepare. I have also made this recipe using sweet potato and it works exactly the same. My friends and family can't wait for me to make it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hit of the meal! Kraft also has a "Layered Pumpkin Dessert" which I used and is very similar. The gingersnaps bottom crust is baked, with the pumpkin layer going on top of the crust. The pudding mixture and Cool Whip then goes on the top. I topped mine with crushed gingersnaps. Everyone loved it. It is very rich & a little expensive to make but well worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious and Easy I made this recipe for Thanksgiving as an alternative to the traditional pumpkin pie. This dessert is very easy to make. It looked exactly like the picture and everyone loved it! It was a nice, light dessert which was perfect after all of the turkey and side dishes we ate. I will definitely be making this dessert again as there were no leftovers.
