Pumpkin Dessert

Here's a great addition to your fall repertoire of pumpkin recipes.  Tastes much like Pumpkin pie, but is an easy dessert to feed a larger bunch. Crunchy, cake-like but creamy also. Textures you will love! Your house will smell amazing too.

Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour

* 1- 15 ounce can pumpkin
* 1 can  sweetened condensed milk
* 3 eggs
* 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
*1 tsp. cinnamon
* 1/2 teaspoon cloves*
* 1/2 cup sugar

* 1- 18.25 ounce yellow cake mix
* 1 cup walnuts or pecans (optional)
* 1 cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease 9x13 pan. Completely combine 1st set of ingredients. Pour into prepared pan. Sprinkle with cake mix. Gently pat down with spoon. Sprinkle with nuts. Drizzle with butter. Bake for 1 hour. Cool and cut in squares.

And here are some pics from one I made with no nuts

Top with a dollop of Whipped cream and Enjoy!
