Pumpkin pie is AWESOME. If you disagree then here's the door: 🚪

Alright, alright, I can let you stay ;)

I was originally going to write a skincare article (which I may publish Sunday,) but I got bored and started looking at magazines. I saw something about pumpkin pie in a jar on the cover of a Good Housekeeping magazine but they didn't show the recipe in the magazine or on their website, so after some digging around on the internet I saw this recipe on, tested it out, and LOVED IT! I had to share it with you guys. This recipe is easy, fast, fun, delicious and super artsy, perfect for Instagram pics!

For the cream cheese mousse:

1. Beat your egg whites in a bowl on medium-high until soft peaks form. It may look like whipped cream.

2. While beating, slowly add sugar, and beat until stiff peaks form. The mixture will go from being kind of frothy to smooth and thick. When done, set aside.

3. In another bowl, mix your cream cheese and vanilla together until smooth.

4. In a separate bowl, melt marshmallows in the microwave, about 15-30 seconds so they get nice and sticky.

5. Add melted marshmallows to the cream cheese and stir until combined.

6. Add a small amount of the egg whites to the marshmallow mixture and fold to combine.

7. Add the remaining egg white mixture to the marshmallow mixture and carefully fold until well combined.

8. Refrigerate for about one hour.

4. Repeat until you reach the desired height.

Voila! Pumpkin Pie in a jar!
