How to Make Jan's Easy Pumpkin Crisp


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease bottom & sides of 9x13 pan.
    Combine pumpkin, evaporated milk, eggs, sugar, cinnamon, & salt in large deep bowl. Mix with whisk until well blended. Pour into greased pan.
  2. Sprinkle dry cake mix evenly over pumpkin mixture. It will sink into the pumpkin mixture a little.
    Top with pecans.
    Melt butter & drizzle evenly over the top.
    Bake at 350 degrees for 55 to 60 minutes, or until top is golden brown & set. Ovens will always vary.
  3. Cool, serve chilled, topped with whipped topping, if desired.

    Note: Can be served slightly warm. Substitute walnuts for pecans, or no nuts at all. For a special treat, try it with vanilla ice cream instead of whipped topping.
