Pumpkin Cobbler

A friend requested this recipe recently.....thought I'd post it here in an effort to keep this blog somewhat sweet! ;)

I originally got it years ago from Taste of Home magazine, a magazine that played a key role in teaching me how to cook. :)  It's real name is Magic Pumpkin Buckle, but my kids could never remember that name and would ask me to make "that pumpkin stuff". ;)  When I would tell them the name, it would lead to an entire conversation on what a strange name they thought it was and why in world it was named that......they liked this name better, so it stuck.

Whatever you call it, you'll also be calling it YUMMY, because it is (we like it with Cool Whip on top)!  It's become a dessert I'm expected to make every fall.....and it's super easy ~ as easy as pie!  Actually, if you make your own crust when you make pie, you'll find this easier. ;)

So, here ya go, Arlene.....this one's for you!  And anyone else who wants it, too. :)
