Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake

Since it is officially "Pumpkin Week" here at One Crazy Cookie, I had to try out one more new recipe! Plus I had 1 cup of pumpkin waiting in the fridge waiting to be used up.  This is easy to put together and delicious! I put it in the fridge and expect it to be even better after a little chill time!! Now I just need to get some whipped cream to go on top. Yum, that would be perfect!!
Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake
adapted from Paula Deen
1 package yellow cake mix
1 egg
1/2 cup butter, melted

1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese
1 cup pumpkin
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine cake ingredients in a bowl and mix well.  Pat into a lightly greased 9 x 13 pan to make an even layer.
Prepare filling: In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and pumpkin until smooth.  Add eggs, vanilla and butter.  Mix it all together. Next add powdered sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix well.
Pour over top of cake layer and spread it evenly.  It will be runny. Bake for 40-50 minutes.  Make sure not to over bake as the center should be a little gooey.
Serve with whipped cream, ice cream or just eat them straight from the pan!!
(I would of had a picture of the whole pan, but my family got to them first!)
