Just be sure to make it with the topping and chill it well. It's not very good on it's own. ;)

I made this yesterday. I used butterscotch pudding (out of vanilla) and made with cream cheese instead of cool whip. Mine was very moist and delicious. The butterscotch icing was great with the pumpkin flavor.

Definitely will make this again. Thanks for a great recipe.
