Reviews for Great Pumpkin Dessert

"I made this and then only had a small piece. My husband liked it, not sure what the neighbors thought. I'll make it again as it was pretty simple, and the small piece I had was good. Wish I'd had more so I could rate this with a more helpful review."
"Love this dessert. Made it for the first time and used Carrot cake mix, which turned out well. I did reduce the sugar in half as well as the butter. It turned out quite well. Very pleased with something this tasty being so easy to make! Am planning to make it for friend's birthday, in a few weeks. Will use a Gluten Free cake mix with that one, as many of my friends are gluten free."
"Delicious, Especially when you use a Butter Pecan cake mix and pecans on top."
"This is a favorite at our house but the one cup of sugar makes it way too sweet. The cake mix adds a lot of sweetness to this recipe. I like to taste the flavors of the pumpkin, not have it overloaded with sugar. therefore, I only use a scant 1/4 cup of sugar, also use pecans."
"I found this recipe in ToH magazine several years ago and my whole family loves it! It's so easy to prepare and tastes delicious! My husband requests it (and prefers it over traditional pumpkin pie) for every Thanksgiving . The only thing I've found is that the nuts get a little burned if you cook this for an hour. So I usually cover it with foil or I wait to throw the nuts on in the last 20-30 minutes of baking. Thanks ToH for another great recipe!"
