I made this for the first time this year for Thanksgiving and it fit in perfectly with the holiday menu. Great change of pace from that old pumpkin pie. I got the recipe from a Taste of Home book. Rave reviews is what I got and requests for the recipe. Serve warm with a little whipped cream and decorate with half of a gingersnap cookie and you have a great thing going on! Do not use the cake mix with pudding.
