Whiskey Pumpkin Shortbread Parfait

My name is Cheryl………..and I’m addicted to PUMPKIN!

Do you love pumpkin as much as I do? This time of year I feel like I can’t get enough of it!

You can eat it in cupcakes, pancakes, cream cheese, pie, whoopie pies, even coffee!

So when the good people at Walkers Shortbread asked me if I would use their famous shortbread in a recipe during the holidays………….PUMPKIN Parfait was the first thing that popped in my head!

If you don’t already love Walkers Shortbread, I’m sure you’ve seen them around.  They’ve been in the business of baking shortbread in small batches in a family bakery in the Scottish Highlands for over 100 years.

 

You are going to love me! Because this recipe I came up with is SO  scrumptious, something totally EASY to make, something you and your whole family will LOVE (you can leave out the alcohol for the kids).  We just won’t talk about what it will do to your hips!

This is a great alternative to pumpkin pie!

Ingredients

    Pudding:
  • 1-3/4 cup cold milk
  • 1/4 cup Whiskey (*you can omit and just use 2 cups milk)
  • 1 -4 cup serving box of JELL-O­ brand Pumpkin Spice Instant Pudding
  • Whip Cream
  • 2 cups very cold heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • Pecan Topping
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 Tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon melted butter
  • Cookie Layer
  • 3/4 of a package Walkers Pure Butter Shortbread, crushed

Instructions

    Pudding
  1. In a medium bowl combine dry pudding mix with milk and whiskey with a wire whisk for 2 minuets then place in the refrigerator to set a little more.
  2. Nuts
  3. In a small bowl mix pecans with melted butter and brown sugar and set aside
  4. Whip Cream
  5. Using a chilled bowl and whisk attachment (I put mine in the freezer for about 20 mins) whip cold whipping cream with sugar and vanilla on high until peaks form (approx 3-4 mins)
  6. Shortbread Cookies
  7. Using a food processor and about 3/4 of a package of Pure Butter Walkers Shortbread pulse until fine or slightly chunky. (you could also put the shortbread in a zipper bag and crush with rolling pin) *I crushed them fine, but I think a little chunky would be even better!
  8. Put it all together: Using individual serving cups, layer; pudding crushed shortbread whipped cream pudding crushed shortbread top with a large dollop or whipped cream sprinkle with candied nuts
  9. drizzle with caramel syrup or topping garnish with 1/2 shortbread cookie

    As an honorary Brit via marriage, Walker’s are the standard by which all other shortbreads are judged. They’re my absolute favorite!
