Terrific Tuesday

ah yes! YES! It IS that day of the week again. So soon? That is why it is terrific.
So, It is only 2 days until Thanksgiving.
A Holiday purely focused on thanking God.
In my opinion this is the best holiday of the year.
So along with thanking God for not only the obvious blessings,
but also thanking Him for the everyday things we all take for granted,
we get to eat food.
Amazing, scrumptious, tasty, delightful. warm-and-happy-in-my-tummy FOOD!
So I knew that this week's Terrific Tuesday item would be a TERRIFIC recipe.
Not just any recipe I must admit....
A recipe I do every year, and it is always a huge hit!
You should most certainly try this recipe of cooking that will please thy guest and sastify thy tastebuds.
Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake

For the cake:
1 18.25-ounce box yellow cake mix
1 egg
1/2 cup (1 stick) melted butter
For the filling:
1 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
1 15 ounce can pumpkin pie filling
3 eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 16-ounce box confectioners’ sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) melted butter
Yields: 20-24 small squares
Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 13 x 9 x 2 inch baking pan.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine cake mix, egg and butter, and mix well. Pour into the bottom of prepared pan and set aside.
In the mixer, beat cream cheese until smooth; add pumpkin pie filling, eggs and vanilla. Dump in confectioner’s sugar and beat well. Reduce speed of mixer and slowly pour in butter. Mix well. Pour filling on top of cake mixture and spread evenly. Bake 40-50 minutes (You want the center to be a little gooey; so don’t bake past that point!). Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before cutting into squares

*recipe secret...... the second time I made this I was going to take it to a gathering the next day so I just placed it in the fridge that night and planned to warm it up a little the next day. Well... I forgot to warm it up and it was served cold. It was AMAZING cold. I rather liked it, so I highly reccomend serving it chilled.
