It’s not often that you get a dessert that has a name like this one…but it holds strong for a reason. This pumpkin lasagna dessert is one that you won’t be forgetting anytime soon.
While the layers of this lasagna aren’t noodles, you can rest easy knowing that gingersnaps take their place quite nicely. Who doesn’t love a little bit of crunch mixed in with all that pumpkin goodness?
It is one of our favorite holiday desserts and the addition of the gingersnaps really puts it over the top. Do you love gingersnaps? If you do then you will really go crazy for this dessert. A big plus is that it is so simple to make too. What more can you ask for?!

Can you leave out the gingersnaps if you don’t want them in this recipe?
You can, but then there wouldn’t really be anything that would be separating the layers. Instead, if you don’t like gingersnaps, just swap those out for a different type of cookie. You could even try a shortbread cookie if you wanted to try something different.
How long is this pumpkin lasagna good for once it’s made?
While it’s hard to set a true limit on this lasagna, my rule of thumb is that it needs to be eaten within 48 hours. (and trust me…this is so good you won’t have any trouble accomplishing that). We never and I mean NEVER have any leftovers!
Remember to keep it stored nicely in the fridge with a lid on as well as that’s the best and most efficient way to keep it as fresh as possible.
The next time that you’re invited over to a friends house, tell them that you’ll be bringing some lasagna for everyone to enjoy…and then watch the look on their face when you show up with this homemade dessert.
