    Wow. And Holy Cow. As my (18 year old) son said, "Gosh mum, it's like Punkin' Pie. Only a [bleep] of a lot better."

    The pumpkin filling/base is smoother, tastier and richer than your average pumpkin pie filling, and the topping is a huge improvement on bland and boring pie crust. The yellow cake mix combined with pumpkin pie spice gives it a sweet kick. Add to that the drizzled butter, and you get a salty kick every few bites that makes you moan me for more! (Yes, I used butter *with* salt, call me a glutton for punishment!)

    One word of caution: My daughter (the Weenit) and her friend were home when this came out of the oven. We all had a serving. The Weenit and I went back for seconds (her friend didn't). Yes, The Weenit and I were rolling on the ground, groaning and bemoaning our lack of self-control while her friend laughed maniacally, extolling the virtues of self-control versus a tummy ache. It's THAT RICH. So, learn from our mistake. Wait at least an hour before having a second piece. Even if it drives you bonkers to do so. :)

    I love recipes that use mixes to short-cut the prep/cook time. While I like to do a lot of things from scratch, it's nice to be able to pull a few things out of the pantry and come up with a 'homemade' dinner or dessert. This one looks like a definite winner! Thanks, - Nat
