This is a great dessert! I substituted carrot cake mix and pecans. My family absolutely loved it. I will make this instead of pumpkin pies for the holidays this year. Thanks!

This is one of the desserts I took to a pot luck dinner. I followed your instructions exactly and it came out perfect. It disappeared right before my eyes. I will make this again.

OMG! This was so good. I didn't have walnuts so used pecans. DH couldn't wait for it to cool, so we had a piece while still warm with whipped cream. To die for! DH said it was worth its weight in gold! Thanks for posting.
