Pumpkin Crisp

I got this recipe over at sweet rebellious Lula & thought it would be perfect for our dessert last Sunday night. Everyone LOVED it & I, who am not the biggest dessert person, have been loving it everyday since for breakfast. I will be making this again & for as many people as I know who dessert, I mean deserve, this! I'm not even a big pecan lover but I would not dream of making this without them.



1 15 oz. can pumpkin
1 cup evaporated milk
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 package butter-recipe yellow cake mix
1 cup chopped pecans
2 sticks butter, melted (I used 1 1/2 just to cut down a bit, hah)

Stir together first 5 ingredients. Pour into a lightly greased 13x9-inch baking dish. Sprinkle cake mix evenly over pumpkin mixture; sprinkle evenly with pecans. Drizzle butter evenly over pecans.

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Watch after 45 minutes, I had to cover it with foil to keep from browning too much. Remove from oven & let stand 20 minutes before serving. Serve warm or at room temperature with whipped cream. We used fat free & it did not take away.

IF there are leftovers, refrigerate. Put a slice in the microwave for 20 seconds & you’ll think you just made it.

Oh my gosh, this sounds divine! And so easy too, it is definitely going to be a fall dessert in my house. Now I just have to come up with my pumpkin martini to go with it!

Kristina P. said...

Ummm, I am making that this weekend. I was going to make a Pioneer Woman recipe, but screw the Pioneer Woman.

Katie said...

I can't stand pumpkin pie, but oh how I LOVE everything else with pumpkin - muffins, bread, etc. I'm seriously going to try (I said TRY) and make this. Wish me luck!! :)

The Blonde Duck said...

Ya'll are killing me with all these crisps and cobblers! All I got is low-fat ice cream!

Tabitha Blue said...

I'm loving all the great fall recipes on all the blogs lately! OMG, we are trying so many things... but I just might have to add this one to my list!

Laurie said...

This looks truly yummy and I have four pumpkins in my garden just waiting to be cooked! What a great blog. I'll be back often...

Kacey Randolph said...

Um, YUM! This sounds fabulous! I'm going to try this for Thanksgiving. I make something similiar but super easy. You take cherry pie filling, pour it in the baking dish, mix yellow cake mix with cinammon and sprinkle it over the cherries. Then you slice a few tabs of butter and lay them on top - bake until it starts to brown. Viola!

You wanted a recipe exchange right? Ha!! My recipe directions aren't as eloquent as yours but Brian thinks I slave over this each time I make it. And I let him think I do. Ha!

scargosun said...

I might make this on Sunday for our family dinner.

Rebeckah said...

I am not the biggest pumpkin fan either, but, if you love it, well then, I am almost positive I will too : )! I made the Chicken braid last night and everyone was in heaven! I told Gary and Kaishon all about you and your wonderful website and they both want me to cook from it every night! Hope you are having a great day!

Lula! said...

It's fabulous, huh? I mean...I want to eat some. Now. Seriously.

That looks sooo good. I really need to learn how to cook!

A tasty variation is to substitute Spice Cake Mix in place of the Yellow/Butter Mix. Enjoy!

Angela said...

Yum! This looks great. It reminds me of a pumpkin squares recipe (sort of like pumpkin pie squares) that I make for Thanksgiving. Wonderful flavors of the season, and I love any kind of crisp. Will have to try it!

Carrie said...

WheresMyAngels said...

Baby Favorite said...

Thanks again! Made this last night and it was a big hit! I think I had 3 servings today, LOL. (OINK!)
