Tried 'n' True: A great pumpkin dessert from Aunt Eloise

My Aunt Eloise Nichols is a good cook, although she doesn’t cook much anymore. She gave me this recipe many, many years ago.

She now lives in Kansas. I like to think she’s here whenever I use one of her recipes.

This one is so easy. Most people will have most everything on hand. I hope you try this Pumpkin Dessert.

Thanks, Aunt Eloise.

Great Pumpkin Dessert

1 - 15 oz. can pumpkin

1 - 12 oz. can evaporated milk

4 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

1 1⁄2 cup chopped nuts
