Bottom Crust 1 package (18 ounces) yellow cake mix, divided 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened 1 egg
Filling 1 can (30 ounces) pumpkin or 3-3/4 cups fresh mashed pumpkin 2 eggs 3/4 cup Splenda or sugar 1/2 cup fat-free milk or evaporated milk 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice (or 2 t. cinnamon, ¼ t. nutmeg, and ¼ t. cloves) 1 teaspoon vanilla
Topping 1/4 cup sugar 1/4 cup flour 3/4 cup chopped walnuts 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. (Do not bake at a higher temperature or the bottom crust will burn.) Butter a 9 x 13 inch baking pan. Open cake mix and remove 3/4 cup of the dry mix. Set this aside for the topping.
Crust: In a medium bowl, combine the remainder of the cake mix, butter, and egg. Beat until smooth with a mixer. Dough will be very thick and sticky. Press mixture evenly in bottom of baking pan.
Filling: In a large bowl, combine pumpkin and all of the remaining filling ingredients. Beat until well mixed. Pour over crust.
Topping: In a small bowl, combine 3/4 cup of the reserved dry cake mix and all remaining topping ingredients. Beat with mixer until blended. Crumble mixture over the filling.
