1 can (15 oz) pumpkin

3 eggs

1 1/2 cup sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup chopped pecans

1 cup butter (it has to be REAL!)

whipped topping

Preheat oven to 350* Grease bottom of a 9×13 pan. combine pumpkin, evap milk, eggs, sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl. Pour into  the 9×13 pan. Sprinkle the cake mix, dry, over the pumpkin batter. Sprinkle pecans over it. Melt your butter and pour over the top of the cake mix.

Bake at 350* for 50-55 min or until golden brown. Cool, serve chilled. top with whipped topping when served.

Refrigerate leftovers, if there are any! 🙂

Best pumpkin pie recipe EVER!

so i made both of these things the other day and already all of them are gone. Cant keep it in the house even if i wanted to . you will definitely enjoy both of these and hopefully they will one day become family traditions for you too.

Thanksgiving went well here and i didnt burn or ruin anything!! Yippee! It was great to see family this time of year and I hope you all had a fantastic time with yours as well.

Merry Christmas to everyone!

Until Next Time,
