Great Pumpkin Pie

All things Thanksgiving --
Ever get disgruntled when the pie crust gets too brown while the pie bakes. If so try this crustless no fuss no mess pumpkin pie.
Happy Thanksgiving.

Great Pumplin Pie

1 can (15 oz) solid-pack pumpkin
1 can (12 oz) evaporated milk
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
Pour mixture into two 8- or 9- inch deep greased pie pans. Sprinkle each pie with 1/2 of one package yellow (or spice) cake mix. Drizzle each pie with 1/2 melted butter and sprinkle with 3/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Bake at 350 degrees for approx. 1 hour or until a knife inserted comes out clean.
Serve with ice cream or a dopple of whipped cream.
