Layered Pumpkin Trifles

A beautiful and delicious dessert that looks like you labored for hours. The perfect blend of seasonal and sweetness. Also, a wonderful option for those that may not enjoy traditional pumpkin pie. Easily made ahead for a crowd. (I’m making these on Wednesday for our Thanksgiving meal on Thursday!) Enjoy!
