This is the dessert I made for Thanksgiving (well, one of them anyway). LOVE this dessert! It is one of my fall favorites. I got the recipe from Simple as That .
Creamy Pumpkin Gingerbread
1 package of gingerbread cake mix
2 small packages of vanilla instant pudding
1 and 1/3 cups of milk
1 15 oz can of pumpkin
1 1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 8 oz container of cool whip
Mix gingerbread according to directions on package. Put in a 9X13 inch greased pan and bake 20-25 minutes. In another large bowl mix pudding and milk. Add pumpkin and spices. Fold in cool whip. Spread over completely cooled cake. Chill for at least 2 hours before serving or overnight. When serving top with whipping cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
**eta: the gingerbread cake mix will be for a square pan but for this recipe you'll bake it in a 9X13
