Whiskey Pumpkin Shortbread Parfait
1 3/4 cup cold milk
1/4 cup Whiskey (*you can omit and just use 2 cups milk)
1 - 4 cup serving box of JELL-O brand Pumpkin Spice Instant Pudding
2 cups very cold heavy whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup chopped pecans
2 Tablespoons packed brown sugar
1 Tablespoon melted butter
3/4 of a package Walkers Pure Butter Shortbread, crushed
Caramel Syrup for topping
In a medium bowl combine dry pudding mix with milk and whiskey with a wire whisk for 2 minutes and then place in the refrigerator to set a little more.
In a small bowl mix pecans with melted butter and brown sugar and set aside.
Using a chilled bowl and whisk attachment (I put mine in the freezer for about 20 mins) whip cold whipping cream with sugar and vanilla on high until peaks form (approx 3 - 4 minutes).
Using a food processor and about 3/4 of a package of Pure Butter Walkers Shortbread pulse until fine or slightly chunky (you could also put the shortbread in a zipper bag and crush with rolling pin). I crushed them fine, but I think a little chunky would be even better!
Using individual serving cups, layer:
Top with a large dollop of whipped cream. Sprinkle with candied nuts. Drizzle with caramel syrup or topping. Garnish with 1/2 shortbread cookie.
