Mini Cheesecake Pumpkin Trifle


  • 8 oz. cream cheese room temperature
  • 1 c. powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 c. whipped topping
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • A sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice
  • Your favorite pumpkin bread
  • Mini Mason jars


  • To start, make your¬†favorite pumpkin bread recipe.
  • Once the pumpkin bread is cool, make¬†the cheesecake part of the trifle by mixing the cream cheese, powdered sugar and cinnamon together.
  • Then, fold in the whipped topping. If you like it sweeter, add more powdered sugar and/or whipped topping. Want more cinnamon flavor? Add more cinnamon. You can't mess it up.
  • Now that the pumpkin bread and the cheesecake filling are done, you are ready to build your Mini Cheesecake Recipe.
  • After I washed and dried the mini Mason jars, I started assembling the trifles.
  • First, I put pumpkin bread in the bottom of the jar.
  • Then, I added a layer of the cheesecake filling. I added another layer of pumpkin bread and then a final layer of the cheesecake filling.
  • I topped them all off with a dollop of whipped topping and sprinkled them with pumpkin pie spice.


I was making "mini" trifles so I had pumpkin bread and cheesecake filling left over (perfect for breakfast the next morning ;-) ). The measurements will depend on the size of trifle you are making.
