Wow, it’s really good and very easy to put together. Hubs isn’t a huge pumpkin fan, and this almost only has a hint of the pumpkin flavor. The pumpkin layer is not very thick and the crispy crust on top really helps make the texture and taste to this dish.
I made this for my family as a Halloween dessert and it was a hit. I will make this again. Would be perfect for a Thanksgiving dessert.
If you are looking for a delicious bar for the upcoming holidays, these will be perfect!
It is the perfect fall dish! I sometimes serve it warm with vanilla ice cream instead of whipped cream!
Make sure that you use canned pumpkin..NOT pumpkin pie filling. A friend made that mistake and warned us that it makes a huge difference! This has become our favorite dessert and so easy to prepare. A winner in every category!
So so so so yummy!!!!! Everyone loves this! Some people said they thought it was sweet potato because they don’t like pumpkin…the recipe is SUPER EASY!!!
I first had this recipe at a dinner party and it was amazing. I’ve been making it ever since!
This crisp will make you forget pumpkin pie ever existed. The crunchy topping is the perfect accompaniment to the smooth pumpkin filling.
If you like pumpkin pie, you will love Pumpkin Crisp. I never make pumpkin pie anymore, this is better and easier.
Stir the cake mix (minus 1 cup for the topping – set this cup to the side for later), melted butter and egg until well mixed.
Pour into the bottom of a 9×13 pan. Press firmly.
In a bowl, whisk pumpkin, egg, sugar, vanilla, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Spread the second layer over the first, crust layer.
In a bowl, add the 1 cup of cake mix that you set aside from the first layer.
Add sugar, cinnamon, and oats.
Sprinkle over the pumpkin middle layer.
Cut in the cold butter with a fork or pastry cutter until it is in coarse crumbs.
Bake for 35-40 minutes or until lightly browned.
