Fall is officially here and I’m kicking off the season with this No Bake Caramel Apple Pumpkin Delight.  This is my favorite time of year and I’m excited to share this dessert because pumpkin and apple are my favorite flavors to bake with.

I love a good no-bake dessert.  One that doesn’t require any baking or cooking and can be made in a pinch.

And since we are talking about this time of year, if you live in the south then you know that it’s hot here.  The leaves don’t fall until January 1st and September is as warm as August.  I’ve spent my whole life in Wisconsin and a few months ago when I visited, it was getting to 45 degrees at night in early August.  I couldn’t believe it.  Has it always been this cold or do I have thin skin (as they say).

This “cake” if you will starts with a cookie crust with warm cinnamon spice, brown sugar and butter.  The filling has a few different layers and even some sponge cake in the center.  It has a silky smooth pumpkin pudding center and a separate caramel apple filling sandwiched between a layer of lady fingers.

Caramel Apple Pumkin Delight is best served several hours to a day after making.  I like to let the cake soak in a little.  This is especially important for the lady fingers as they soak up some pumpkin and take on the flavor as well as stabilize the filling of the cake more.

Serve with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.
