Thanksgiving Trifle; easy as pie

I adore making trifles. They are ALWAYS yummy and they ALWAYS look gorgeous.  Tomorrow is my office holiday feast…the day we gorge ourselves from noon until about 5PM…we all love each other so much in my workplace…no, really, we DO!

I thought I would share my Thanksgiving trifle with you…easy to make and truly yummy…this one is NOT low fat, low calorie, low NOTHIN!


2 small boxes of Jello Pumpkin Spice pudding (available only during the holidays)

4 cups of milk to make the pudding

1/4 t. ground cinnamon added to pudding mix

2 cans of apple pie filling mixed with about 1 cup of raisins

2 small containers (or 1 lg) of Cool Whip

1 box of Spice Cake mix (need 3 large eggs, oil and water) bake as directed in 9X13 pan-cool and cut into chunks

1 bag (2 cups) chopped pecans and 4 T honey (mix nuts in honey on low heat until carmelized then cool on wax paper)

LAYER- in a large glass bowl or Trifle Bowl

cake to cover bottom –>   about 1/3 of pudding –> about 1/3 of pie mix with raisins –> cover with whipped topping and spinkle pecans on top

Repeat the layer a second time

Final layer  –>  cover the entire top of the trifle with the cool whip so it looks like it is iced and then generously sprinkle with the pecans

Cover tightly and let it sit in fridge for at least 24 hrs for flavors to blend….serve with a large spoon and extra topping if desired

    I did something similar to this with pumpkin one year. We all loved it, except C, so we’ve returned to pies… sigh.

    Looks like your idea was a hit. And I bet apples definitely did more than the peaches would’ve. Peach is a summer flavor. So when will you invent a mojito trifle? :p
