    Teresa M's Note:

    This is a blue-ribbon award-winning recipe that my husband cut out of our local newspaper from a recipe contest. I have not made it yet, but I will as soon as I can because DD Loves Pumpkin Pie! Here's what the author, Debbie Grandits, says about it, "Everyone's response was, It's better than pumpkin pie, and this year my phone has been ringing off the wall with requests for the recipe".

      When I made this at Thanksgiving, my son was very disappointed that there wasn't any pie. He ASKED for it at Christmas, and he wants me to make it for the dessert competition at an upcoming picnic. My husband thought it was terrific, because it combined the flavors of his two favorite holiday pies!

      This is a great dish. My husband introduced it to me as Pumpkin $#!%. I said, "oh we can't call it that." So I call it Pumpkin Stuff. I've also tried Pumpkin Upside Down Pie. It is really good. My husband says the way to do the butter is to cut it into the tiniest of slices and cover the whole thing with them.

      this is a great recipe, I have made it many times with no problems. My variation calls for a spice cake mix instead of yellow cake. Also, instead of using a 2 layer mix, I prefer to use a one layer mix which I find to be more than adequate. For nuts, I recommend pecans. Bon appetite!
