    Nope, pumpkin pie mix ot the same as a can of pumpkin. This has all of the seasonings you need to make a pumpkin pie from the can. It’s an easy cheat for pumpkin pie or this yumm-o n

    When you say a large can of “pumpkin pie mix”, do you mean just the big can of pumpkin? I am definitely keeping this recipe. I am a pumpkin fanatic. lol. I even like the pumpkin pie blizzard at dairy queen 🙂
