Easy Pumpkin Dessert

  • This Easy Pumpkin Dessert has been around for a long time.  It is really easy to put together and tastes a lot like a pumpkin pie with a twist.

    So, I was looking through some of my older cookbooks the other day for something different to make.  That’s when I came across this recipe.  Let me tell you, it doesn’t get much easier than this.  You basically dump everything into the pan and bake it.  AWESOME!!!

    Also, I like this a lot better than the traditional pumpkin pie.  (I’ll let you in on a little secret…..I don’t really like pumpkin pie!)  I know, I know how can somebody not like pumpkin pie.  I just prefer apple, blueberry or peanut butter pie.  Or something with ice cream and chocolate!

    So, since one of the ingredients was a cake mix I decided to give it a whirl.    And I am glad I did.  The whole family liked it.  Especially topped with freshly whipped cream mmmmmm…….

    To get a little off topic- do you consider yourself a traditional Thanksgiving food person or do you like to go outside the box and try new recipes????  I am a little of both.

    I like to have the staples- you know turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing.  But after that I change it up.  There have been years I haven’t made green bean casserole, no cranberry relish or jelly, or your traditional sweet potato casserole.  I know most of you are probably thinking I am crazy for not at least having green bean casserole but don’t judge me to harshly, I just like to go outside of the box sometimes.

    I do realize it probably isn’t the best practice to serve a completely new dish I have never made before on T- day so that’s why I test them out on my kids.  🙂

    They are such faithful and loyal test subjects.  See having a large family does come in handy! 🙂  Just kidding, they are wonderful kids in more ways than one!!

    So, tell me do you stay on the traditional side of things or do you go outside of the norm and serve a different menu at Thanksgiving???
