Step 1

Generously spray a 5 1/2- to 6-quart slow cooker with cooking spray.

In large bowl, beat cake mix, pumpkin, water, vegetable oil, eggs and pumpkin pie spice with electric mixer on low speed 1 minute, scraping bowl constantly. Increase speed to medium; beat 2 minutes.

Pour batter into slow cooker; cover and cook on HIGH 1 hour 45 minutes to 2 hours or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Uncover and cool 10 minutes. Run a knife around the edge to loosen; turn out onto a cooling rack and cool completely.

Meanwhile, in medium bowl, beat cream cheese, butter and vanilla with electric mixer on low speed until smooth. Gradually beat in powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, on low speed until smooth and spreadable. Spread over cooled cake. Sprinkle with pecans or walnuts, if desired. Cut into pieces to serve.
