Pumpkin Pie Cake

Pumpkin Pie Cake

Sometimes when two worlds collide they make a wonderful thing, such as this dessert. At first I was just curious as to what it would be like then after tasting it I fell in love. I like pumpkin pies, but in my family we all love the filling more than the pie crust. This will be a huge hit for us plus it’s easy to make ahead of time and not have to worry about a perfect pie cracking.

Pour pumpkin mix over crust, then sprinkle remaining crust on top – pan will be quite full.

Bake at 350 degrees for 60-70 minutes (a knife inserted near the edge will come of pretty clean, but the center will still be a smidge jiggly). Cool completely and chill before serving with whipped cream or cool whip. Serves about 24.
