Deep Dish Pumpkin Pie






This recipe comes from my Pastor’s wife, Allison.  She brought it to a dinner we had at church, and trust me; it is delicious!!

1 box yellow cake mix
1/2 cup melted shortening
4 eggs
1 large can pumpkin (4 cups)
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup brown sugar
4 oz. evaporated milk
1 tsp vanilla

Remove 1 cup of cake mix and set aside for topping.  Mix remainder of mix with 1 egg and melted shortening.  Press into a 9 X 13  ungreased cake pan.  
Mix pumpkin, 3 eggs, cinnamon, milk, brown sugar and vanilla.  Pour over cake mixture.  Combine topping ingredients:  1/4 cup shortening, 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup chopped nuts, 1 cup cake mix to make a crumble and sprinkle over the top.  Bake in a 350 oven for 1 hour.

Just in time for Thanksgiving, this is wonderful even if you don’t like pumpkin!!
