On the hunt for a Thanksgiving dessert that is a sure crowd pleaser? Search no further!

This pumpkin sheet cake with cream cheese frosting is always a hit and it is one of the easiest desserts ever to make.   Literally place all the ingredients in a bowl, mix and spread into a rimmed baking sheet and bake.  The frosting is a classic easy cream cheese frosting that spreads easily and is beyond yummy.

This dessert can be easily halved and made in a half size rimmed baking sheet, as I have done many times, as it comfortably serves about 10.
