Dessert is not my favorite thing. And pumpkin pie- I never eat. But this recipe is SO Good. I will make it ever year. I tastes and looks like you worked so much harder than you did. Everyone who has eaten it is so happy to eat it.

I love this recipe. I've made it several times; always with rave reviews. The only thing these instructions lack is that the dessert MUST be refrigerated before serving for best taste. One time we ate it right away and it was just yukky at room temperature - after refrigerating the rest overnight, it was fabulous. Also, a nice variation is to add about 3/4 tsp. of pumpkin pie spice to the BOTH the pumpkin mixture and the frosting. This makes a great recipe even better!
