At Thanksgiving I am usually more on the 'enjoying' side of the table and not on the 'cooking' side of it. That's all changed this year. I took over on making one of my Mom's classics and I thought I would share it will all of you
This is a really simple recipe for some seriously delicious dessert squares. So whip up a batch of these for the holidays, and don't forget to tell me how it goes!
Step 1: The Recipe and Ingredients
Let's start with the recipe.
1 package yellow cake mix
1/2 cup margarine melted
3 cup (1 lb 15oz can) pumpkin pie mix (not just pumpkin pie filling)
2/3 cup milk
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup margarine
Grease the bottom only of a 13x9x2 inch pan. Reserve 1 cup cake mix for topping. Combine remaining cake mix, melted margarine, and 1 egg. Press into pan—to make the bottom crust. Combine the pumpkin pie mix, 2 eggs, and milk. Beat until smooth. Pour over crust. Combine the reserved cake mix, sugar, cinnamon, and margarine (not melted). Cut the margarine in—so it is dry and crumbly. Sprinkle over the filling. Bake in a 350 degree oven 45-50 minutes, or until knife inserted near center comes out clean. Serve with whipped cream or cool whip.
Don't worry, I'll walk you through it. If you're as cooking inept as I am you'll need it ;).
