4 oz 1/3 fat cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup pure canned pumpkin

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

3 tbsp dark brown sugar, unpacked

1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

1/4 tsp nutmeg1/4 tsp cinnamon

8 oz light whipped topping (Truwhip light or Fat free Cool Whip)
MAKE:

*Crush graham crackers in a food processor. Set aside.
*In a large bowl beat the cream cheese until smooth with an electric mixer. Add the pumpkin, vanilla, sugar, pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg and cinnamon. Beat until well combined and creamy.

*Use a spatula to fold in 5 oz (1-1/2 cups) of the whipped topping; combine until no streaks remain. Place in a piping bag or ziplock bag with a corner snipped off.

To assemble:

*Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of graham cracker crumbs on the bottom of each shot glass. Pipe a layer of pumpkin cheesecake onto the graham cracker crust (about 1 tbsp) followed by a layer of whipped topping. Repeat a second layer and finish with another sprinkle of crumbs. Insert small spoons and refrigerator until ready to serve.
