Pumpkin Lasagna

This Pumpkin Lasagna dessert is stacked with the most delicious layers – a Pumpkin Oreo crust, cream cheese layer, pumpkin pudding layer, and topped off with cream and white chocolate curls.

Some of my favorite pumpkin recipes are layered—for example, Magic Pumpkin Cake, Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars, and Pumpkin Delight. This Pumpkin Lasagna is another favorite on the list!

With that in mind, I have to make sure I’m providing loads of delicious, mouth-watering pumpkin desserts to keep you guys coming back. I’m hoping I’ve done that for you, and I think it’s working because I’m officially a pumpkin dessert convert myself.

Pumpkin lasagna layers

Layering your pumpkin Lasagna

This Pumpkin Lasagna dessert is composed of three luscious layers, each one just as tasty as the next.

The crust is made from a combination of Golden Oreos and Pumpkin Oreos (or gingersnaps works great too!).

Next is a creamy cheesecake type layer, then a delightful pumpkin spice pudding layer, and finally whipped topping and white chocolate curls.

Here’s how to create this wonderful concoction:

OREO CRUST. Crush your Oreos, or put them in a food processor for finely crushed Oreos. Add the melted butter and mix until well combined. Press into the bottom of a 9×13 pan, and make sure it covers the entire pan.

CHEESECAKE LAYER. Blend together the cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, and ½ of the cool whip to make your cream cheese layer. Pour over the Oreo crust.

PUMPKIN PUDDING. Make the pumpkin pudding by whisking together the milk and instant pudding. Whisk until pudding thickens. Pour over the cream cheese layer and refrigerate for at least 5 minutes.

WHIPPED TOPPING. Top off with the remaining Cool Whip, or homemade whipped cream, and add white chocolate shavings. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.

Homemade Pumpkin Pudding

Just in case you have a hard time finding the instant pumpkin pudding mix, here is a homemade recipe you can use to take place of the pumpkin pudding (mixed with milk) layer:

  • 1 – 5.1 oz. vanilla instant pudding mix
  • 1 – 12 oz. can evaporated milk
  • 1 – 15 oz. can pumpkin puree
  • 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

Mix pudding mix and evaporated milk together and refrigerate for 5 minutes. Add puree and pumpkin pie spice and whisk together and use for the pumpkin pudding layer in this dessert. 😉

Pumpkin CHEESECAKE Lasagna FAQ

Can you make this ahead of time? Yes – we usually make this 24 hours in advance. The chocolate curls are fine being added before refrigerating too. Just be sure to cover and keep refrigerated until ready to serve.

What if I can’t find Pumpkin Oreos? You can use just golden Oreos instead of a combination, or substitute the Oreos entirely for graham crackers or gingersnaps. All of them are tasty options!

What’s the best way to make chocolate curls? We make them using a potato peeler. We buy a bar of white chocolate and shave the sides with the potato peeler which makes beautiful curls. They’re fragile so try not to handle too much.

I’m happy to report that everyone who tried this pumpkin cheesecake lasagna loved it!! In fact, I took some over to my cousin’s family (because the hubby and I were eating the whole thing by ourselves) and her husband wasn’t too happy with me after he ended up eating several pieces. LOL!

If you love pumpkin and love layered desserts, I definitely think you should give this one a try. It is sure to be a hit at your next get together!

  • 2 rows golden Oreos
  • 2 rows pumpkin Oreos or crushed Gingersnaps
  • 8 TB unsalted butter melted
  • 8 oz PHILADELPHIA cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 c butter
  • 1 c powdered sugar
  • 16 oz container cool whip divided, or use whipped cream
  • 2 3.4 oz packages of pumpkin instant pudding
  • 3 c milk
  • white chocolate bar to make curls with - I use vanilla candy coating


  • Begin by crushing your Oreos. For a very fine mixture, place Oreos in your food processor. Place in a ziploc baggie and add your melted butter. Mix until it is well combined.
  • Press into the bottom of a 9x13 pan spreading out to cover the entire bottom of the pan.
  • In a medium bowl, blend cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar and ½ of the cool whip. Blend well and pour over your Oreo Crust.
  • In another bowl, make your pudding by adding your milk to your bowl and instant pudding. Whisk together until pudding thickens. Pour over the cream cheese layer. Refrigerate for at least 5 minutes.
  • Top off with the rest of your Cool Whip. Add white chocolate shavings.
  • Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving. ENJOY!

    This sounds amazing. I plan on making it soon to try. Then I want to make it for Thanksgiving instead of regular pumpkin pie. Thank you

        1. I’m sure that would be just fine. I haven’t done that, but I’d love to know what you think! If you find the oreos in the store, you’ll see all the other flavors they have, in case you want to use those. Thanks so much!

          1. I couldnt find pumpkin oreos so should i just use golden oreos also do i scrap the frosting or leave as is?

    1. I haven’t tried that, so not sure how it would turn out, but I’d love to know if you give that a try!! I wish I knew how much you’d add, but I guess the same amount as pudding. Let me know how it comes out. Thanks so much for stopping by!

  2. OMG! I can’t wait to try some of these recipes! Pumpkin season should never expire! I can’t wait to make some soft pumpkin cookies! It’s been to hot here to turn on the oven, so baking hasn’t been on my list!

  3. 5 stars
    With Fall on it’s way these are wonderful desserts. I’ll be on the lookout for pumpkin pudding now. This just might be a bigger hit than pumpkin pie!

  4. I bought all the supplies and then started looking for pumpkin pudding. I couldn’t find it anywhere. I made vanilla and added a little pumpkin pie spice and I used a little less milk and added pumpkin pie dairy creamer. I haven’t tried it yet. its setting up in the fridge. The “homemade pumpkin pudding” tastes great but it doesn’t have the same golden color as the crust.

    1. I work at Jewel (an Albertsons company). They got in a small shipment with a little cardboard stand 4 days ago and I only got one box. Had to use vanilla and pumpkin pie spice for the rest of the mixture.

    1. I would probably just make this, no sooner than the morning of. That’s just me, though! Not sure what would happen if it was made too far in advance. Hope that helps!! Hope you like it!!

  5. Why couldn’t you make this using your personal pumpkin pie filling receipe that you hvave precooked? I don’t like the instant pumpkin pudding.

  6. I was just wondering you say to use 2 sleeves of the pumpkin Oreo and the vanilla Oreo, both of mine are different sizes so do you still just used 2 sleeves of each kind? The pumpkin Oreo cookies are limited edition and they are a smaller pack than the regular vanilla Oreo cookies.

  7. So here in canada we either dint have it or its super hard to find pumpkin oreos or pudding. So instead I did try pumpkin puree instead. I mixed it with vanilla pudding spiced it with a bit of pumpkin spice and for the bottom I just used golden oreos. Turned out delicious and I will definitely be making it again!!!

  8. … Are you only supposed to use the cookie part of the Oreo and not the cream? Looking forward to making this really soon!

  9. After seeing this recipe I have been looking for pumpkin pudding found the cookies but no pudding. Today I found pumpkin pudding at Wal-mart, bought the cookies again so I no what I will be doing tomorrow. Can’t wait to try it.

    This was delicious and easy to make…I wasn’t able to get pumpkin pudding. So I used vanilla pudding and added pumpkin pie filling. It was a huge hit at my family thanksgiving.

    1. So did you use the milk, plus the 2 puddings then a can of pumpkin?
      Or did you just use the dry pudding plus pumpkin?

      1. It’s the pudding mix combined with the 3 cups milk. Don’t make the pudding, then add milk. The pudding is also pudding flavor, there isn’t pumpkin in the recipe, besides the pudding and oreos. Hope you enjoy!!

  11. Is there anything I can use in place of Cream Cheese in most of these Yummy sounding recipes? I am alergic it cream cheese. So there are so many recipes for desserts I can not make because of this. Would love to hear if there is.
    Thank you

    1. I wish I knew. I read that you could use equal part pureed cottage cheese or equal part plain yogurt, strained overnight in a cheesecloth. Hope those help. Google has suggestions. Hope you find something!! Thanks for stopping by!

  12. I see in the recipie that you have Philadelphia in all caps, does this mean you would only suggest the use of this brand or can we use any brand? (I bought a local cream cheese is why I am asking). Thanks a bunch!

  13. Wow I’ve never seen something like this before! I love the idea, and the fact that you call it pumpkin lasagna definitely catches the eye! Great recipe!

  14. I was able to find the pumpkin spice pudding but I could not find pumpkin Oreos. How much pumpkin spice should I add to the Golden Oreo mixture?

    1. I haven’t tried just adding spice the the oreos, so really I’m not sure. I wouldn’t over do it, but I guess you could add as little or as much as you’d like. Start with a teaspoon? Hope that helps! I’d love to know how it comes out! Thank you!

  15. So i couldnt find pumpkin oreos should i just use the whole pack of golden oreos? Also do i scrap the frosting off the oreos or just leave the as is & grind them??

  16. This dessert was delectable. My brothers Mother-n- law shared this with me this year 2016. So I just happened to notice a small display at our local winco 28th these cookies I grabbed 2 pkg just in case. But I could not find the pumpkin spice pudding. So I went to Walmart nothing so I gave up just then I looked one more time and up in a corner three new flavors bam pumpkin spice. So I made a test run. They begged for more. Well Thanksgiving I won over there hearts. We might only get this once a year but we can’t wait.

    1. So, glad you found the pudding!! Yay! It sure is a “hit” recipe!! Thanks so much for making it and letting me know!!

    This Pumpkin Lasagna seems really interesting – easy to make using ingredients readily available at home. I’m sure my kids will love this quick, delicious dessert. Please keep sharing such interesting recipes more often!

    gonna try this on the top of baked pumpkin cheesecake pie. i use a cake mix crust, and bake it as usual. when it cools, gonna have to use your recipe on the top. got to be great!

  19. Looking forward to making this dessert. First, if you can’t find them in stores, Pumpkin Pudding and Pumpkin Oreos can be ordered fm Amazon.com. Second, I’d like to use fresh whipped cream vs Cool Whip.
    How much Heavy Cream would I need to whip? And, do I need to add a stabililizer to it? If so, what do you recommend? Thank you for this and all your delicious recipes.

  20. Hello! I am going to make this for thanksgiving. Will I need about 2 rows of Golden Oreos (10 cookies or so) and 10 ginger snap cookies for the crust? I am a little confused. I am unable to find pumpkin Oreos at the store.

    1. Yes, I don’t have a count of how many oreos are in a row, but it is 2 rows of golden ores & about the same in gingersnaps, crushed. Hope that helps 🙂

  21. That looks amazing, what a shame they don’t sell pumpkin or pumpkin oreos here in Canada. I guess I need someone to send me a care package, lol.

    a pumpkin fan, but of all the pumpkin desserts I’ve eaten, this is by far my favorite. The cream cheese layer just puts it over the top.

    1. Hmm…Usually, at this time I don’t have a problem finding it in my grocery stores, but if you can’t. You might have to order it online?? I hope you find it!

    I am an australian. We like to use fresh ingredients, not canned or packaged. i love pumpkin, so how would i make this dessert using fresh cooked and mashed pumpkin? philly cream cheese, no problem, crushed biscuits no problem, but how to make a pumpkin pudding topping please. as far as i know we don’t have pumpkin pudding packaged. i have never seen canned pumpkin here either, but pumpkins are plentiful.

    1. That is a great question. I haven’t tried making fresh pumpkin. I would google or use Pinterest. I’m sorry, I wish I was an expert about making fresh pumpkin filling & pudding.

  24. on the golden oreo do you remove the stuffing in middle of them then you crush up the cookies i can’t fine pumpkin oreos here where i live they are seasonal cookies so you crushed up gloden oreos and gingersnaps together is that how it works

    1. You do leave the cream in. I haven’t tried mixing the golden with gingersnaps, but that might work!

  25. 5 stars
    Wow, wow, wow, this was so so good! Used gingersnap cookies for the crust & the recipe above for the pumpkin LAYER since I couldn’t find the pudding, everyone raved about it, this is a keeper!!

    1. Hmm..that’s a good question! I have never left it out. Have you tried googling what good substitutes would be? That would be my suggestion. Have you tried making a dairy free cream cheese?

  26. I couldn’t find pumpkin pudding. So I’m making homemade version. Do I still need to add the 3 cups milk plus the can of evap milk?

    1. Not sure if you were following the recipe for the homemade on this post or your own, but if you were following the one I shared, you would just use what I listed. You wouldn’t be adding milk. But, it’s hard to know, if you are using your own recipe, since I won’t know what’s in it.

      1. If you make your own pumpkin pudding mix, do not use 3 cups of milk when making the pumpkin layer. Cut the milk at least in half. 3 cups of milk made it like soup.

    OMG Hands down the best dessert I have ever made. Everyone was raving about it! I used gingersnaps for the bottom crust and added 1/2 tsp more of the pumpkin pie spice! Delicious…
