Thanksgiving Pumpkin Slush Cake
You can substitute walnuts, finely chopped almonds, crushed graham crackers (any flavor), finely chopped pretzels, or crushed Oreo(R) cookies for the pecans.
You can use Jell-O(R) brand Pumpkin Pie Instant pudding instead of the vanilla pudding and pumpkin with spices. It is not always available, however. When I make this I use one large package of Jell-O(R) cooked vanilla pudding and let it thicken and cool before folding in the pumpkin and spices and whipped cream.
