Recipe for a Happy Thanksgiving

In anticipation of Thanksgiving, I wanted to share one of my absolute favorite desserts. It’s called Pumpkin Pie Cake, and my mom has been making it since I was a tyke. It’s one of those goodies that I would always sneak little tastes from throughout the day until someone else came into the kitchen for a piece, and then they’d yell, “Why is there, like, one square inch of Pumpkin Pie Cake left?”

Enjoy, and have a wonderful day tomorrow (and all days).
