This is an excellent dessert for Thanksgiving. I was looking for this and there are a lot of recipes like this but not with the pumpkin. This is nice for Thanksgiving.

It called for 2/3 cup milk, however in the recipe never said where to add it; assumed it went in with the pudding layer? I cut back the cream cheese to 3 or 4 oz and it worked well.
