Pumpkin Crunch

A couple of weekends ago, our family made the trip down south to visit my mom for the weekend.  She served us the most amazing pumpkin dessert I have ever tasted.  I like pumpkin, but this dessert took pumpkin into a whole new realm of deliciousness!  It was so good, I wanted it for breakfast....and I am NOT a dessert person! 

So here is the recipe.  Make it.  Become obsessed with it.  Wow your Bible study group, be the hit of the next social event, impress the in-laws, or woo that single guy you've had your eye on.  

Or not.

Make it on a crazy day--and then hide yourself in a closet and eat until the pumpkiny sugar rush has drown out the sounds of kids fighting, dishes needing to be done, laundry to fold, and bathrooms to clean.

Yes, it is that good.
Pumpkin Crunch

1 1/2 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Pecans (halves)
