Better Than Pumpkin Pie Squares

This is a recipe I found a few years back and received rave reviews as well as requests for the recipe when I took them in to work. I LOVE pumpkin pie and still can't have Thanksgiving without it but if you don't like or are intimidated by making pie crusts and still love pumpkin pie really must try this recipe. So, So Yummy it really is sinful that it is so easy to make.

The recipe says to cut it into 12 but if you are wanting to serve along side other desserts, cut it into smaller taste size squares.

Ingredients: 1 box plain yellow cake mix 4 eggs 1 cup brown sugar 1 can (30 oz. size) pumpkin 1 cup margarine or butter 2/3 cup milk 1 tablespoon cinnamon ( I added 1/2 tsp ginger and 1/2 tsp nutmeg)

1/2 cup brown sugar


Reserve 1 cup of the cake mix. Set aside. Melt 1/2 the margarine and mix with remaining cake mix and 1 beaten egg. Spread in bottom of 9 x 13-inch greased Pyrex dish. Mix together the first measure of brown sugar, the milk, cinnamon, remaining beaten eggs, and pumpkin. Pour over cake mix layer. Combine the reserved cup of cake mix, remaining brown sugar and the remaining softened margarine. Crumble over pumpkin layer and bake 45 minutes at 350 degreesF. Serve warm, or chill in refrigerator. Cut in squares and serve with whipped cream or whipped topping.
