My mom got the recipe from her friend Nancy 30+ years ago and it is just perfect! You can add 1 cup of chopped walnuts if you like.

My 3 year old & I just made this, Delicious! Easy recipe to follow, and it turned out perfect. I added a cinnamon-powdered sugar icing just for kicks, and I used pumpkin pie spice instead of individual nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, & ginger. I probably used 1 1/2-2 teaspoons total of that, but then again the pumpkin pie filling I used was pre-seasoned. I just added the spice to taste because that's what I had on hand. It was still very good!
