Cooking time 85mins
Preheat oven to 350. Spray 10x14 pan with Pam. Set aside.
Mix the cake mix, butter and egg on medium speed about 1 minute. Mixture will be dry. Press into the bottom of your prepared baking pan.
FILLING: Mix cream cheese on low speed about 1 minute until smooth. Add the pumpkin, condensed milk, 2 eggs and spices. Increase speed to medium and beat until smooth, about 2 minutes. Pour the batter into the pan over the prepared crust and smooth to the edges. Top with walnuts or pecans.
Put pan in the pre-heated oven and bake until the edges have set and the center is a little soft, about 45 minutes. Let cool for 1 hour. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 more hour before cutting and serving.
These bars do NOT freeze well. Will keep in the fridge for 5 days.
This recipe will make 20-22 bars depending on how large or small you cut them. Serve with whipped topping or ice cream.....YUMMY!!
