Thanksgiving Pumpkin Slush Cake

Recipe by  

"If you have had lemon lush or chocolate dream dessert, this is the pumpkin alternative. It is a great recipe to use as an alternative to pumpkin pie. It feels less filling when you are filled with Thanksgiving turkey and sides!"

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Stir 1 cup pecans, flour, butter, white sugar, and 1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar together until crumbly. Press pecan mixture into the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  3. Bake pecan crust in the preheated oven until golden, 20 minutes. Cool completely.
  4. Beat cream cheese and 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar in a bowl with an electric mixer until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Fold 1 1/2 cups whipped topping into cream cheese mixture. Spread cream cheese mixture over cooled pecan crust.
  5. Beat pumpkin, milk, brown sugar, vanilla pudding mix, and pumpkin pie spice together in a bowl with an electric mixer until mixture thickens, 2 to 3 minutes. Gently fold in 4 ounces whipped topping. Spread pumpkin mixture in a layer over the cream cheese mixture.
  6. Spread remaining whipped topping over the pumpkin mixture layer. Sprinkle cinnamon and remaining 1/4 cup pecans over the top. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • You can substitute walnuts, finely chopped almonds, crushed graham crackers (any flavor), finely chopped pretzels, or crushed Oreo® cookies for the pecans.
  • You can use Jell-O® brand Pumpkin Pie Instant pudding instead of the vanilla pudding and pumpkin with spices. It is not always available, however. When I make this I use one large package of Jell-O® cooked vanilla pudding and let it thicken and cool before folding in the pumpkin and spices and whipped cream.

My family loves this. They have asked me to make it for Thanksgiving instead of Pumpkin Pie.
