Who needs pie?
I am always looking for an easier solution to a dessert than pie. Although I do make pie occasionally, it takes more time to prepare, especially if you are already cooking a holiday meal. Not only that, a pie doesn’t serve many people.
I have found one delicious alternative to pumpkin pie. I think its almost as good and much faster to prepare!
1 cup sugar
1 (15 oz) can pumpkin
1 can evaporated milk
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 yellow cake mix
1 1/2 stick butter - melted
chopped walnuts or pecans
Mix first 5 ingredients well; pour into a greased 9x13 inch pan. Sprinkle the dry cake mix over top; pour 1 1/2 sticks melted butter over cake mix, then sprinkle with chopped nuts.
Bake at 350 degrees for one hour. Cool. Serve with whipped topping or ice cream.

I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.
