READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Teresa M

This is a blue-ribbon award-winning recipe that my husband cut out of our local newspaper from a recipe contest. I have not made it yet, but I will as soon as I can because DD Loves Pumpkin Pie! Here's what the author, Debbie Grandits, says about it, "Everyone's response was, It's better than pumpkin pie, and this year my phone has been ringing off the wall with requests for the recipe".

When I made this at Thanksgiving, my son was very disappointed that there wasn't any pie. He ASKED for it at Christmas, and he wants me to make it for the dessert competition at an upcoming picnic. My husband thought it was terrific, because it combined the flavors of his two favorite holiday pies!
