This pumpkin dessert is a delicious and easy alternative to pumpkin pie! It has twice as many servings as traditional pumpkin pie.

Combine all filling ingredients in another bowl. Beat at low speed until smooth; pour filling over crust.

Good taste. The directions state "to bake until knife inserted comes out clean". After 58 minutes and my knife still did not come out clean; I removed cake from the oven anyway. I was glad I did. The taste was very good, except for the over done crust on bottom. I will definitely make again knowing not to bake until the knife comes out clean.
I made this recipe 3 times this Summer to take to picnics. It was a Big Hit with everyone. It is so delicious and easy to make.Instead of whipped ceam, I took a container of Cool Whip to garnish the squares.
I love this pie. Started making in 1999 and I won't eat regular pumpkin pie anymore.
Awesome dessert, everyone plowed through it, I will be making it again!
This is a great alternative to traditional pumpkin pie. A very simple recipe to follow. I'll be making this every Thanksgiving from now on.
It was a hit! It is really delicious and easy because you use the cake mix as the base. I was looking for a use for my home grown pumpkins and used fresh pumpkin puree.
I make this every year for Thanksgiving. I do not like regular pumpkin pie but I LOVE this! I crave this every year and get asked to make it every turkey day. You will not be disappointed!

I’m something of a traditionalist. My family tends to gravitate toward the same desserts every year for our holiday celebrations – sugar cookies, something pumpkin, and something with chocolate…but this year, I was feeling like trying something new. Enter Cranberry Pavlova. This recipe is part of our 2014 Holiday Brochure, and I was in love at first bite.
Bring the bold flavors of
ginger and sesame to a
variety of meals.
Life gets extra busy this time of year. Like everyone else, my family has the normal action-packed schedule…work, basketball practice, piano lessons, gymnastics, homework…not to mention, fitting in holiday activities like baking cookies, shopping, cutting down the tree… More ...
