The delicious winning dessert from the December votes.  It turned out excellent!  

1 14 oz can Pumpkin Pie
1 pack Cream Cheese (softened)
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
2 Cups Heavy Cream
1/3 Cup Granulated Sugar
1 tsp Almond Extract
1 Cup Orange Spice tea (brewed with 1 teabag and chilled)
1/2 Cup Orange Juice
24 Lady Fingers

Mix pumpkin, cream cheese, brown sugar, and pumpkin pie spice.
In a separate bowl use a hand mixer to mix heavy cream, sugar and almond until medium peaks are formed.  Fold 3/4 of the whipped cream into the pumpkin mixture.
In a small bowl combine the tea and orange juice.  
Slice lady fingers in half and dip 2 halves in to the tea mixture and place in a single layer in bottom of the dessert glass.  Top with a thin layer of the pumpkin mixture.  Add more lady fingers dipped in the tea mixture either 2 or 4  depending on the glass to lay a single layer down.  Top with pumpkin mixture and repeat until you hit the top of the glass.  Top with a dollop of whipped cream.  Garnish with 2 lady finger halves.
