Alright, guys. Thanksgiving is close! Don’t worry about getting that last jog in because it will not matter. You will succumb to the food and accept yourself as a shameless hungry human being and I am going to help you.

I’m a dessert girl, so I’m just going to jump right in and tell you how to make a Pumpkin Cheesecake Spiced Latte. Sorry, a Pumpkin Cheesecake Lasagna. Now, I won’t damage your diet too much. It’s just a dessert lasagna with lots of sugar, caramel and cream cheese. I’m sure you’ll be fine.

The first thing you want to do is gather up your ingredients:

1 package cream cheese (softened),

¼ c. sugar, 1 ½ c. heavy cream,

2 c. milk,

3 small packages of vanilla pudding mix,

1 c. pumpkin puree,

1 tsp. pumpkin spiced latte…Sorry! Pumpkin pie spice,

10 graham cracker sheets,

¼ c. caramel,

And pecans for “decoration” (you eat them too is what I’m saying).

Step One: beat that cream cheese and sugar until it is light and fluffy. Show em’ how funky strong your fight is. Just beat it…for 2 minutes. Slowly add the heavy cream and continue to beat it until stiff peaks form. Just beat it.

Step 2: In another bowl, beat the milk, pudding mix, and pumpkin PIE SPICE until thick. Beat it.

Step 3: Spread a thin layer of cream cheese mixture in a 9×13 baking dish. Put the graham crackers on top and also save some for that gingerbread house you’ll be making for Christmas. Multipurpose! Add half of the pudding mixture and top with a layer of half of the cream cheese mixture.

Step 4: Cover delicately with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours and up to overnight. Do not sneak downstairs and try a bite. We can control ourselves. Try eating those pecans people call a “garnish” in between time.

Step 5: Drizzle that caramel right on there. If you’re feeling rebellious, go ahead and cause a downpour. “Garnish” it with the pecans…

Step 6: Go back to Walmart and buy more pecans.

Step 7: Garnish it with the pecans.

You can enjoy this dessert with your family and friends or share with a family in need for Thanksgiving!
