Pumpkin Pie Crunch November 29, 2007

Filed under: recipes — savvychic @ 2:54 pm

This is so scumptious!  I really don’t care for pumpkin pie, to the horror of my mother(!), but I could eat this entire dish if I could keep it a secret from my kids.  🙂

It is also very simple to make.


16 oz pureed pumpkin

4 tsp pumpkin pie spice

1 1/4 cups sugar

1/2 tsp salt

3 eggs

2/3 cup (or 1 12 oz can) evaporated milk

1 cup walnuts, pecans, or other chopped nuts (optional)

1 pkg cake mix (I have used yellow and spice mixes)

1 cup butter, melted


Combine the pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, sugar, salt eggs and milk.  Stir very well.  Pour into a lightly sprayed 9×13 inch pan.

Sprinkle the top of the pumpkin mixture evenly with the dry cake mix and nuts.  Drizzle with the melted butter.

Place in preheated 350 degree oven  for 50-55 minute or until golden. Cool completely and serve with whipped topping!

(I doubt you’ll have leftovers, but in case you do, be sure to put them in the fridge.)
