A few years ago, I posted a recipe called Butterfinger Dessert Lasagna, which has become one of my most popular recipes on here. And deservedly so, seeing as it had everything a peanut butter lover could ever ask for–layers of Nutter Butter sandwich cookies, rich butterscotch pudding, fluffy peanut butter cheesecake mousse, and crunchy Butterfingers.

Another reason why I think this dessert became so popular is because of how quicky and easily it came together. What’s not to love about a dessert that’s a cinch to make, requires no baking whatsoever, and most importantly, tastes OUT OF THIS WORLD AMAZING?!?

So with that being said, it was time to make a little sequel to that beautiful beast of a dessert…

Just call this Pumpkin Maple Dessert Lasagna the fall edition of dessert lasagnas. With comforting autumn flavors like maple and pumpkin, this is exactly what my soul has been searching for.

Inspiration for this fall-inspired dessert came from Oreo’s newest flavor, Maple Creme.

While Oreo has come up with some pretty odd flavors in the past (Swedish Fish Oreos, anyone?), these will NOT disappoint. Upon opening the package, you get the sweetest maple aroma, reminding you of waffles and pancakes. I’ve never been a fan of the Golden Oreos, but THESE I’m SO totally onboard with.

Thankfully, I bought two packages of these addictive little devils. Not only does the recipe call for more than what one package contains, but there was no way I was going to have the willpower to abstain from eating at least a few…or 10.

Truly, this dessert really does come together in minutes, and it’s actually a lot of fun to make because of all the layering. First, the pumpkin pudding is made by combining some instant vanilla pudding, canned pumpkin purée, a little pumpkin spice, and some evaporated milk.

The maple cheesecake mousse is just as easy–beat some cream cheese, maple syrup, and powdered sugar together until smooth, fold in some whipped topping, and you’re ready to layer!

Aside from eating infinite spoonfuls of this dreamy dessert, layering is the best part. First, a layer of Oreos goes along the bottom of the dish (I used 16 Oreos per layer), followed by a layer of pumpkin pudding, and then a layer of the maple cheesecake mousse. Repeat the layers once more, then top it off with a final layer of whipped topping and toasted chopped pecans. That’s it!

Well, almost…the only hard part is waiting overnight for everything to set up. You want to allow the cookies enough time to soften, so it’s easier to cut into. (For photo instructions, head on over to my Butterfinger Dessert Lasagna post!)

While this Pumpkin Maple Dessert Lasagna is AMAZING as is, you also have the option of drizzling on a little caramel. Wait, what am I saying?? Since when is caramel ever just “an option”?? It’s mandatory!!

Yes, this is EXACTLY what I’d envisioned…

Excuse me while I wipe the drool off of my keyboard…

Cuisine American
Servings 12 Servings

Ingredients
  

  • 1 (3.4 oz) box instant vanilla pudding
  • 10 ounces evaporated milk
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree
  • ½ teaspoon pumpkin spice
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • cup maple syrup
  • cup powdered sugar
  • 1 (8 oz) tub whipped topping, divided
  • 32 Maple Creme Oreos (can substitute Golden Oreos)*
  • ½ cup toasted pecans chopped

Instructions
 

  • In a medium bowl, whisk the pudding mix, evaporated milk, pumpkin, and pumpkin spice together. Set aside to thicken while you prepare the maple filling.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together the cream cheese, maple syrup, and powdered sugar until smooth. Fold in 1 and 1/2 cups of the whipped topping.
  • To assemble, start by lining the bottom of an 8-inch square dish with half (16) of the Oreos. Spread half of the pudding evenly on top of the cookies. Top with dollops of the maple filling, then spread into an even layer. Repeat the layering with the remaining cookies, pudding, and maple filling. Spread the rest of the whipped topping on top, then sprinkle with the chopped pecans.
  • Cover and refrigerate overnight to allow the cookies to soften up for easier cutting. Serve with a drizzle of caramel, if desired.

Notes

*You will need a little more than one package of the Maple Creme Oreos since there are 24 in a package.
