Fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture, followed by the pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice, and brewed coffee. Spoon the mixture into individual serving dishes and refrigerate for at least two hours. To serve, top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
Next, we have Pumpkin Spice Mousse Cups courtesy of SugarHero. This recipe is perfect for those who prefer a lighter, fluffier mousse. To begin, whisk together pumpkin puree, sugar, egg yolks, pumpkin pie spice, and salt in a medium saucepan until smooth. Cook this mixture over medium heat, whisking constantly, until it reaches a temperature of 160°F. Transfer the mixture to a mixing bowl and let it cool to room temperature. Whisk together heavy cream and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the whipped cream into the cooled pumpkin mixture. Spoon the mixture into individual serving cups and chill for at least two hours. To serve, top each cup with whipped cream, chopped pecans, and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
