A Thanksgiving Favorite. . .

As it's that cozy, festive time of year, I would like to share this fabulous thanksgiving-table worthy dessert that's worked it's way up to my list of top recipes.
 
This recipe is one of my specialties;)  My family says it tastes even better than pumpkin pie, if that is possible, and it's so easy to whip up!
 
Go fetch your apron, and enjoy!
 
 
~ Pumpkin Dessert ~
oven 350°F
1 C. flour
1/2 C. rolled oats
1/2 C. brown sugar
1/2 C. butter
 
15oz. (half of a 30oz can) Libby's canned pumpkin {Libby's is Tradition!}
12oz. evaporated milk
3/4 C. sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ginger
1/4 tsp. cloves
 
~ Topping ~
1/2 C. chopped pecans or walnuts
1/2 C. brown sugar
 
 
For crust:
Mix dry ingredients.  Press into greased 13x9" pan and bake for 15 minutes.
 
For filling:
Mix the rest or the ingredients, pour on baked crust and bake an additional 20 minutes.
 
Top it off:
Remove from oven and sprinkle chopped nuts and brown sugar over the entire top.  Bake for 15-20 minutes or until firm.
 
Serve warm with copious amounts of fresh whipped cream, and enjoy!
 
 

P.S. - Always make a double batch!!! 
P.S.S.  It's really good the next day, too, if it lasts that long=)
