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.
