Pumpkin Pie Squares..Sunny, warmer

A family favorite, this is a  quick and easy recipe to satisfy your pumpkin cravings!

1 (15 oz.) can pumpkin
1 (12 oz.) can evaporated milk
1 cup brown sugar
3 Eggs
1 tsp. Maple flavoring
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 box yellow cake mix
1/4 cup butter or margarine (see note)

In large bowl beat eggs and sugar together, add pumpkin, milk, flavoring and spices, beat till smooth. Pour into a lightly greased 13 x 9 inch pan.
Sprinkle evenly with dry cake mix. Dot with butter.(Note: I use a frozen stick of butter and my hand-held grater for this, evenly distributes butter over top with very little mess!)
Bake in 350* oven for 30-35 minutes, center will just be set and a knife inserted  near center should come out clean, top will brown lightly.
Allow to cool to room temp and serve, or refrigerate and eat cold the next day. Some in our family like them warm, some cold, try 'em both and see which you prefer!!!
