Pumpkin Spice & Everything Nice

Pumpkin 4

Today, I’m over at Mixing Mavens whipping up something yummy for Thanksgiving.

And of course, I’m sharing it here as well!

Pumpkin Spice Bars


1 package (18.25 ounces) spice cake mix

1 egg

2 tbsp butter, melted

1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened

1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk

1 can (16 ounces) pumpkin

2 eggs

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup chopped pecans


In a large bowl, combine cake mix, 1 egg, and melted butter; stir until mixture is well blended (it will still be a dry consistency).

Press into the bottom of a 10 1/2 x 15 1/2 x 1 inch jellyroll pan.

In another large bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Add sweetened condensed milk, pumpkin, 2 eggs, and salt; beat until smooth.

Then do this:

Once poured over the crust, sprinkle-sprinkle-sprinkle the pecans.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes or until filling is set. Cool in pan on a wire rack 20 minutes. Cut into 1 1/2-inch bars and store in refrigerator until ready to serve.

Add a dollop of cool whip, and a sprinkle of cinnamon-sugar because, well, just because!


2 days until Thanksgiving………you ready??
