Easy pumpkin parfaits

The busy holiday season is fast approaching, so I wanted to whip together an easy seasonal dessert. With only four ingredients and less than 10 minutes of prep time, these adorable layered desserts can go from mixing bowl to table in no time flat. Use this recipe as a base to add in whatever ingredients strike your fancy. Just imagine how delicious these would be with gingersnap cookies and dark chocolate curls.
