Default Pumpkin Spice Dessert Recipe

Thought I'd share my dessert recipe for Thanksgiving. I know it is not diet friendly, but ~ seems I remember that someone said there are no calories in the food on Sundays and holidays This is what I make instead of the regular pumpkin pie. I like it way better. It is a recipe I found in one of those little tear out things (Bisquick recipes) from a Woman's Day magazine (1979 it says).

Pumpkin-Spice Dessert

1C bisquick baking mix
1/2 C quick cooking oats
1/2 C packed brown sugar
1/4 C firm butter or margarine
1 can (16 oz) pumpkin
1 can (13 oz) evaporated milk
2 eggs
3/4 C granulated sugar
1/2 t salt
1 t ground cinnamon
1/2 t ground ginger
1/4 t ground cloves
1/2 C chopped pecans
1/2 C packed brown sugar
2T firm butter or margarine
Cool Whip

Heat oven to 350*. Mix baking mix, oats, 1/2 C brown sugar and 1/4C margarine until crumbly. Press in rectangular pan (13x9x2). Bake 10 minutes; cool slightly.
Beat pumpkin, milk, eggs, granulated sugar, salt and spices; pour over baked layer(crust). Bake 20 minutes. Mix pecans, 1/2 C brown sugar, and 2T margarine until crumbly; sprinkle over filling. Bake until set (15 - 20 minutes). Cool completely. Serve with cool whip. Makes 12 servings.
One day at a time ~ never giving up!!

Nobody can force you to have a certain attitude. But life will go so much better if you will simply choose to be positive. When you wake up, choose to be happy. Choose to be grateful for the day. (Joel Osteen)
