I wish I could give this more than 5 stars! Excellent. It does taste like pumpkin pie! So easy to make the crust does form a cookie like base which is very lovely with the additon of ground pecans. This cake is not overly sweet, just right for us. Next time I would like to up the pumpkin pie spice. Mine baked up nicely in 44 minutes. Topped with whipped cream and more ground pecans. Thanks for another great recipe!!
Absolutely wonderful! This is an easy recipe to make and the cook time was right on the dot for my oven. I used pecans, personal preference for me. Already have this saved to my cookbooks. The only problem I have with this recipe is keeping my family from eating it all at once!! Thanks for a great recipe.
