If you don’t like pecans you can use another type of chopped nuts on top or just skip them. Honestly, pecans go great with the pumpkin flavors but walnuts, or even chopped almonds would be good as well!

How to make a layered pumpkin dessert:

Coat a 9″x9″ pan with cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, mix together the graham cracker crumbs, butter and sugar until thoroughly combined.

Firmly press the graham cracker mixture into the bottom of the pan. Chill for 30 minutes.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the pudding mix and evaporated milk. Add the pumpkin puree and cinnamon and stir until smooth. Let set for 5 minutes.

Pour the pumpkin pudding over the graham cracker crust and spread into an even layer.

Chill for one hour.

Spread the whipped topping over the pumpkin pudding layer. Drizzle the caramel sauce over the whipped topping and sprinkle with pecans.

Chill for 2 hours or up to 2 days.

Prior to serving, use a knife to slice the lush into squares. Freeze for 20-30 minutes, then use a spatula to remove the squares from the pan. This step will help you get neat slices. Serve.
