I had high hopes when I made this dessert, sadly I was a little disappointed. I didn't care for the jiffy corn muffin mix as a topping. The topping needed more sweetness and seemed too salty and slighlty gritty (I think from the cornmeal). The pumpkin portion of the recipe was good. If I were to make again I would use half a yellow cake mix in place of the corn muffin mix.
I made this before Thanksgiving to test it out. The taste and texture were good and we enjoyed it. But it did not cut into bars because it was too soft. Did I take it out of the oven too soon? After the 50 minutes I checked it and it was not done, so I left it in 10 minutes longer. It seemed to be done then. I will try it once more sometime.
I made this for the holiday dessert table & will definitely be making it again in the future. It is creamy, has a nice pumpkin pie flavor, and slices into bars easily. Not one person guessed it had Jiffy cornbread mix in it. I used walnuts instead of pecans, but otherwise followed the recipe. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
We love this stuff !! I lightened it up even more by using 1 egg and 1/2 c. egg beaters and i used reconstitued butter buds for the butter. Top this with fat free cool whip and it is heavenly. DH says it's one of the best so far :)
