Thanksgiving Pumpkin Crunch Cake Dessert

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

My family will give up a pumpkin pie for this! ---- two teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice may be used in place of the cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice --- I have made this using both the white and yellow cake mix I have to say that the yellow is better to use.

I made this with my girl scout troop to enter a pumpkin pie contest. It was very "pumpkinny" and had a different spin on pumpkin pie. Very similar to "dump cakes" where you use pie fillings and top with cake mix, butter, and nuts. As for the pie contest, the girls won 1st prize. Thanks for the recipe.
