Pumpkin Cobbler ~ That Other Pumpkin Dessert

This may just replace your regular pumpkin pie
at your next holiday dinner. 
It's not a pie and it's not a cake.
It's the other pumpkin dessert.
 Pumpkin cobbler...or crunch when topped
 with chopped pecans or walnuts. 

It's warm and comforting.
 It uses regular pumpkin pie ingredients, with
 the addition of yellow cake mix and melted butter
for the streusel topping. It's easier than pie 
and will serve more people. 
 In a large bowl whisk the eggs.
 Whisk in the pumpkin, milk, sugar, and spices.
 Use the butter wrapper to grease a 9x13 dish.
 Melt the butter in the microwave for 1 minute. 
Stir in the cake mix and mix until crumbly.
 Sprinkle the topping evenly over the top.
Bake in a 350º oven for 1 hour until golden.
You can also sprinkle on 1 C chopped pecans on
top for a nice crunch. Sprinkle the nuts on just
half of it and see which way you like it better.
I like it both ways. 
 Let cool about 15 minutes.
 Cut into squares to serve.
Use a small spatula. 
I like my slice plain and still warm
with a cup of coffee.
 Larry likes his topped with ice cream.
It's a  nice holiday dessert that will 
serve 16-24 at your next party.
