It’s October! . . . and that makes me think of pumpkins . . . and pumpkin pie! If you like pumpkin pie but don’t like the mess of making the crust, here is an easy dessert for you!

Pumpkin Dessert Squares

1 (18.5 oz.) pkg. yellow cake mix ½ cup margarine, melted
1 egg

3 cups (1 lb. 14 oz. can) 2 eggs
pumpkin pie mix* 2/3 cup milk

1 cup cake mix (from pkg. 1 tsp. cinnamon
above) ¼ cup margarine
¼ cup sugar Cool Whip

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 9”x13” baking pan. Reserve 1 cup cake mix for topping. (You don’t know how many times I have forgotten to do this!) Combine cake mix, margarine and egg; press in pan. Beat together pumpkin pie mix, eggs and milk; pour over crust.
  • Mix together the reserved 1 cup cake mix, sugar and cinnamon; cut in margarine with fork to make crumbs. Sprinkle over filling. Bake 45-50 mins. until knife inserted comes out clean. Cool. Top with Cool Whip or whipping cream.

*For use with 1 lb. can solid pack pumpkin, add 2 ½ tsp. pumpkin pie spice and ½ cup brown sugar. OR
Use 1- lb. can solid pack pumpkin and add ¾ cup sugar, ½ tsp. salt, 1 tsp. cinnamon and ¼ tsp. cloves.
