Well...that would have been a great plan, but in the midst of packing all the other dishes I took to thanksgiving, I somehow forgot to pull this one out of the fridge. So now I have two 9"x13" pans of pumpkiny goodness in the fridge. They will most certainly be going to work with me tomorrow for my co-workers to enjoy!
Praline Pumpkin Dessert
1 can (15 oz) pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
1 can (12 oz) evaporated milk
1 cup sugar
4 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® yellow or spice cake mix
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans or walnuts
3/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
Whipped cream, if desired
