We celebrated a late Oktoberfest with several of Studs' siblings and cousins last Saturday evening. The ladies brought appetizers and desserts and we prepared a hearty German meal. Cousin Judy provided this week's tempting treat. Damn, that woman is creative!
This recipe makes a lot. If your gathering is ten people or less, consider cutting the measurements down to one-third, although, leftovers are delicious. Trust me on that.
1 small can pumpkin
3 small pkg. vanilla instant pudding
2 - 3 dashes pumpkin pie spice
1 box Nabisco Nilla Wafers
Combine all ingredients except wafers in a medium-sized bowl. Stir well.
Fold mixture into a serving dish or cleaned out pumpkin. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Center your serving dish or pumpkin on a large glass plate or tray. Surround with the wafers and serve.
