I stumbled upon this recipe online several years ago at the Betty Crocker website and realized at the time that I had all the ingredients in my pantry … no trip to the grocery store needed.
So I made it that night … and everybody loved it!
This was back in the good old days before all our family’s food allergies were in full swing. I think I’m the only one who could actually eat it now. So sad. But more for me. 😉
It’s not a pie … but the bottom layer is essentially pumpkin pie filling. It’s not a cake … but it uses a box of cake mix. It has a crust on top that’s almost like a cobbler crust with nuts added … but it’s not a cobbler either.
No wonder they simply call it a “dessert” … it defies description. 😉
Anyway, this recipe is almost too easy. I had to read the instructions several times to make sure I wasn’t skipping a step or something important. It’s also one of those things that you can buy the various ingredients when they’re on sale to keep on your pantry shelf for a spur-of-the-moment, relatively inexpensive dessert.

It’s great potluck material, too.
