Great Pumpkin Dessert

15 oz can pumpkin
12 oz can evaporated milk
3 eggs
1 c. sugar
4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 pkg. yellow cake mix
¾ c. butter
1 ½ c. walnuts or pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13 pan.

In a mixing bowl, combine first five ingredients. Transfer to a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2 in. baking pan. Sprinkle with dry cake mix and drizzle with butter. Top with walnuts. Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream. Yield: 12-16 servings.

This dish is like a pumpkin pie with a crunchy nut topping. It’s a great alternative dessert for the holidays and all year long!

A few weeks ago I posted about my experience in making this dish here:
