Missy's notes for this recipe:
This is my cousin's recipe. She makes this every year for Thanksgiving. It is so YUMMY!

Please note: Allow to cool so it sets before you flip.

With a subtle pumpkin flavor, this lovely dessert avoids overwhelming the palette with loads of holiday spices. Instead, each bite melts in your mouth, allowing you to slowly savor its comforting creaminess. The crunch of the nut "crisp" is equally delicate, making this one family-friendly treat that would be right at home on any holiday dessert table or brunch buffet!


Mix pumpkin, mild, sugar, cinnamon & eggs.
Pour mixture into 9x13x2 pan lined with wax paper. This keeps things from sticking to the pan.
Crumble dry cake mix over pumpkin mixture. Crumble nuts over cake mix and pour melted butter
over the top of all this.
Bake @ 350 for 50 - 60 minutes. Allow to cool in pan until cooled thoroughly. Turn upside down and remove wax paper. Cover top with topping mixture and refrigerate.
NOTE: When you pull out of oven, make sure the pumpkin is set, if not cook a few more minutes, just keep checking until cooked thorough (think of pumpkin pie texture not custard). You do not want the whipped topping to melt, so cool completely.

Congratulations Missy...I am so happy for you...I have a question...could I use fresh whip cream instead of cool whip...I am not a big fan of cool whip. Thanks.
