Pumpkin Dessert Squares

This is Uncle Larry's current favorite dessert. I chose it for my birthday "cake" this week.

For crust: 1 pkg yellow cake mix (take out 1 cup)
1 egg
1/2 c melted butter

For filling: 1 can (about 1 1/2 cup) pumpkin
3 eggs
1/2 c sugar
2/3 c evaporated milk (I use fat-free)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg

For topping: reserved cup cake mix
1 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp melted butter
(optional) 1/4 c chopped pecans

Grease bottom of 9" x 13" pan. Mix crust ingredients and press mixture into pan.

Beat filling ingredients together. Pour over crust mixture.

Combine topping ingredients until crumbly. Sprinkle over filling layer. Bake in preheated 325 degree oven about 45 minutes.
