Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Tiramisu

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough "Tiramisu"

So, I think that I’m going to put a little disclaimer at the beginning of this recipe to let you know that this. is. not. healthy. and my motto has and always will be everything in moderation. You’ll find recipes on my blog like homemade spaghetti sauce seasoning, whole wheat mixed berry shortcakes and healthy lunchbox ideas, but then you’ll also find recipes like apple crisp with snickerdoodle cookie crust, chocolate covered strawberry OREO truffles and brownie smores made with Peeps.

Pumpkin + Jello + Cool Whip

I only call this “tiramisu” because the pumpkin, pudding and Cool Whip mixture soaks into the chocolate chip cookies while sitting overnight and creates a delicious cookie dough flavored dessert.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

The trick is to use the store-bought Chips Ahoy cookies (not the chewy version).

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Tiramisu

Layer the Cool Whip mixture and the cookies in a Trifle Bowl or 9×13 pan and layer ending with the whipped topping. Let sit overnight so all of that pumpkin pudding and whipped topping can soak in the cookies!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Tiramisu

1 pkg (3.9oz) instant pudding
(1) 16 oz. of whipped topping
3/4 cup cold milk
1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 family size packages of Chips Ahoy Chocolate Chip Cookies

  1. Mix the pudding with milk and whisk for 2 minutes.
  2. Fold in the whipped topping, pumpkin puree and cinnamon.
  3. Start layering with the pumpkin mixture, followed by the cookies and continue to the top of the Trifle Bowl or until you’ve used all of your ingredients.
  4. Refrigerate, covered, overnight.

(I used a white chocolate pudding mix and there is only a subtle pumpkin flavor in the dessert. If you like stronger pumpkin flavor, use a pumpkin pie pudding mix and add 1 tsp of pumpkin pie spice instead of the cinnamon).

This dessert is an adaptation of this Kraft recipe called Cookies and Milk Dessert.  I also created a different version (Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Tiramisu) made with espresso and marscapone cheese. There are so many different variations you can do with the pudding flavor and spices!

Apple Crisp with Snickerdoodle Cookie Crust

You can probably tell that fall is one of my favorite times of year by my recent postings {hello Pumpkin Streusel Dessert Pizza!} Pumpkin, apples and cinnamon are the ultimate fall flavors and I’m all about fall desserts. There’s nothing better than cooking soup in the slow cooker and having a pumpkin or apple dessert on a chilly, fall night.

This Apple Crisp combines the delicious cinnamon-and-sugary snickerdoodle cookie with the perfect in-season fruit right now: apples.

Unfortunately we didn’t get any apples this year on our apple trees since they were just planted, but I’m hoping for next year.

Pumpkin Streusel Dessert Pizza

It’s 90 degrees today in Iowa, but that doesn’t stop me from dreaming about fall, which will soon be here. I’ve got my sweaters and my boots ready, my comfort foods are ready to be slow cooked, and of course, I’m ready for all things pumpkin. I’ve made delicious Pumpkin Pie Caramel Biscoff Cheesecake, Overnight Pumpkin Oatmeal with Cinnamon and Sugared Pecans and now this delicious Pumpkin Streusel Dessert Pizza.

My love for dessert pizza definitely started with Godfathers Pizza. If you’ve never had a Godfather’s dessert pizza, you should seek one out. In college, we didn’t have a Godfathers nearby, so on weekends home I would buy a few and take them back with me to my dorm room… they were that good.

Butter and Cinnamon on a Pizza Crust

This Pumpkin Dessert Pizza combines my love for the classic dessert pizza and everyone’s favorite fall flavor. I usually cheat and use store-bought pizza dough mix, but you can use your favorite homemade pizza dough recipe if you prefer.
