Need a quick and easy fall dessert? These No Bake Oreo and Pumpkin Cheesecake Parfaits look super impressive but take only minutes to pull together.

No Bake Oreo and Pumpkin Cheesecake Parfaits - Fall desserts don't get much easier than these No Bake Oreo and Pumpkin Cheesecake Parfaits!The ginormous display of canned pumpkin in the grocery store (that I nearly ran my cart into the other day) is a not-so-subtle reminder that fall baking season has officially arrived.

Lisa and I have both sweet and savory ways to use all the pumpkin this fall, but let’s start with something sweet. And easy. And no bake. I don’t know about you, but I’m already sold on these No Bake Oreo and Pumpkin Cheesecake Parfaits with just that brief introduction!

Tip: I used a pastry bag to fill the glasses with the pumpkin cheesecake but you can easily accomplish the same thing by snipping off a corner of a plastic sandwich bag and using that to pipe the cheesecake mixture into the glasses.

Impressive looking? Yes. Difficult? No way. These fall flavored parfaits (think cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves) benefit from a few easy shortcuts like frozen whipped topping and crushed Oreo cookies. Heck, you can even whip up the whole thing without a mixer if you let your cream cheese come to room temperature. Plus they can be made ahead of time and kept in the fridge until dessert is served – perfect for effortless entertaining.

    This looks amazing! I;ll be making it for my book club group this month. 🙂 How far ahead do you think I can make the pumpkin cheesecake part?

      Hi Amanda, I suggest no more than two days in advance. You can still assemble the parfaits the morning of your book club meeting. Hope that helps!

      Hi Laurie, I used a regular 15 ounce can of pumpkin. I have not tried using real whipped cream, but I’d be curious to hear your results if you give it a go. Enjoy!

    Pumpkin and Oreos sound like they’d be great friends!! Although I’m not a huge cheesecake fan, do you think I could substitute the cream cheese for pudding or something?

      Hi Sara, You can certainly switch up the filling if you prefer. Try your favorite pudding flavor and let us know how it turns out!
