Pumpkin Butter Parfaits

As promised here is my first installment of a Thanksgiving Day dessert recipe. I found this recipe in a magazine my Mom had at her house, it looked and sounded yummy and I knew at that very moment I needed to give a try. This recipe makes 6 single parfait glass servings, but if you have a bigger crowd you can very easy make enough for a trifle bowl to feed a larger gathering.

1 Spice Cake Mix
1 – 8oz Cream Cheese (soften)
2 C. Extra Creamy Cool Whip
1 – 10oz Jar Pumpkin Butter

Prepare cake mix according to package directions; cool and cut into small pieces. In a mixing bowl combine cream cheese and cool whip and beat until smooth. Crumble cake into the bottom of each dish then layer on pumpkin butter and top with cool whip mixture, repeat layers ending with pumpkin butter. Garnish with additional cool whip and nuts. Chill until ready to serve.
