Low Sugar Pumpkin Napoleons

If you’re looking for an easy and elegant dessert that’s perfect for the holidays, then this dish is for you. I had a lot of fun making this recipe and even got my husband involved in the final assembly. In fact, I had to stop him from eating all of the pumpkin filling before we were done! The combination of JELL-O Vanilla Fat Free Sugar Free Instant Pudding, COOL WHIP LITE Whipped Topping and canned pumpkin created a delicious filling with great flavor and a light, creamy texture. Layering the crispy wontons with the pumpkin filling was easy and fun-- a perfect way to get your family involved in the kitchen. For an elegant twist, I made some of the napoleons by piping the filling onto the wonton wrappers with a piping bag but you can just as easily spoon the filling on. A drizzle of maple syrup and some chopped pecans finish the dish. For an adult version, try stirring a little bourbon into the maple syrup for added flavor.
