This is a great dessert! I substituted carrot cake mix and pecans. My family absolutely loved it. I will make this instead of pumpkin pies for the holidays this year. Thanks!

This is one of the desserts I took to a pot luck dinner. I followed your instructions exactly and it came out perfect. It disappeared right before my eyes. I will make this again.

OMG! This was so good. I didn't have walnuts so used pecans. DH couldn't wait for it to cool, so we had a piece while still warm with whipped cream. To die for! DH said it was worth its weight in gold! Thanks for posting.

Yum! I found this in Taste of Home Fast Fixes With Mixes. It's so quick and easy but delicious. A definite keeper for that last minute dessert. The house smells terrific! Thanks for posting!

I will never make a traditional pumpkin pie again after tasting this. I am one who eats the filling first and this will certainly satisfy that craving...simply delicious. Followed the recipe to the letter and it passed with FLYING colors!

What an awesome alternative to Pumpkin Pie! It is like a pumpkin cobbler. I substituted a spice cake mix for the topping and drizzeled some Hershey chocolate syrup on top before baking. I made this yesterday as a trial run for the upcoming holidays and my family ate it up in record time!

This is such an amazing dessert--and one of the simplest, too! Furthermore, it is quite economical. The only mark it's missing is healthiness, but you have to indulge every once in a while! ;) I have made this following the recipe to a T, but I have also tried it with a spice cake mix and pecans instead of walnuts, which worked wonderfully, too. It's equally delicious served with Cool Whip and vanilla ice cream, cool and warm. This has to be one of my all-time favorite desserts. Thanks for posting this recipe!

I took this recipe (minus walnuts) to a picnic in August and lots of people wanted the recipe. I thought it was delicious warm and cold with whip cream.It also would be great with vanilla ice cream. Thank you
