Praline Pumpkin Dessert

I stumbled upon this recipe online yesterday at the Betty Crocker site and realized I had all the ingredients in my pantry … no trip to the grocery store needed.  So I made it last night … and everybody loved it!

It’s almost too easy.  I had to read the instructions several times to make sure I wasn’t skipping a step or something.  It’s also one of those things that you can buy the various ingredients when they’re on sale to keep on your pantry shelf for a spur-of-the-moment, relatively inexpensive dessert.

It’s not a pie … but the bottom layer is essentially pumpkin pie filling.  It’s definitely not a cake … but it uses a box of cake mix.  It has a crust on top that’s almost like a cobbler crust with nuts added … but it’s not a cobbler either.  No wonder they simply call it a “dessert” … it defies description.  😉

    I love “whatchagot” recipes like this. My favorite recipes for muffins and casseroles are “universal” recipes as well. They’re great for using up assorted odds and ends. This one looks great…ah, if only I could eat canned soups! But I’m sure I can come up with some kind of substitute for that. Thanks! 🙂

    • Wow, I honestly don’t know. I’ve never tried freezing it before (we always eat it up too quickly to have any left to freeze).

      Anyone else out there have experience freezing this?
