Pumpkin Crisp Plus Lower Fat Variations

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Jennifer Bennifer

This is my husband's favorite dessert. We got the recipe from his uncle Larry. I have made it for my family and it has been requested that I bring it to Thanksgiving again this year. I also made it for a BBQ this summer, and a friend who came to the BBQ asked for the recipe so she could make it for Thanksgiving. It's great anytime, but its a must in my house for Thanksgiving.
