I am not a Pumpkin Pie fan, but this is a wonderul pumpkin treat! My friend Cindy first brought this to a department gathering at work a few years back and the taste of this wonderul treat brings back wonderful memories of my now-departed friend!

Actually this is easier than pumpkin pie and really yummy! I make this recipe quite often in the fall, since making a pie crust isn't my favorite thing to do. The last time I took it to a party, every one wanted the recipe. The recipe I used to use called for a whole cake mix, but my mom and I thought it was too much so started just using 1/2. That way you can make another one! Mine also called for 2 cans of pumpkin, which is good, but glad to see you can still make a 9x13 pan with only 1. Thanks for posting this great recipe, LMiller.
