Pumpkin Lust Cake

I honestly feel like we just had Halloween...and now Thanksgiving has come and gone. The older I get, the faster time flies. I just want it to slow down just a little bit! 
One of my favorite desserts is Nutty Torte. I love both the chocolate and lemon version....and I am pretty sure I could eat the whole pan my self. Calories don't count when you are pregnant, right? When I was browsing Pinterest, I found a recipe for basically the same thing, just using Pumpkin Spice pudding. I went to 4 different stores, and could not find it. So I made up my own version. It turned out pretty darn good!


Ingredients:


Crust
1/2 cup butter
2 tablespoons sugar
1 cup flour 
(you can add chopped up pecans if you would like)
Mix and press down in a cake pan. Bake at 350 for 12 minutes. Let cool.

2nd Layer:
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup cool whip
1 cup powder sugar

Mix and layer onto crust.

3rd Layer:
2 small boxes of Pumpkin Spice Pudding OR
2 small boxes of vanilla pudding
3 cups milk
2 tablespoons pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon pumpkin spice
Mix and layer on cream cheese mixture.

For final layer add the rest the cool whip. Refrigerate and before serving, sprinkle with nutmeg or chocolate shavings.
