What Can I Use for an Icebox Dessert Crust?

This Pumpkin Lasagna is actually very unique. This recipe is made almost completely from scratch. The crust is made from scratch and taste amazing, which makes it not like most icebox desserts. This recipe doesn’t use graham crackers or cookies.

Should I Use Homemade Whipped Cream?

This Pumpkin Lasagna is a bit different then most desserts. This recipe does not use the regular topping of whipped cream. You will not need homemade whipped cream because the recipe uses whipped topping which is similar to Cool Whip. However, if you prefer to not use Cool Whip and want homemade whipped cream, it will work in the recipe.
