What You Need

3
 fresh pears (1 lb.), peeled
3/4
cup  packed brown sugar
1
tsp.  pumpkin pie spice
1/2
cup  dried cranberries
1
pkg.  (2-layer size) yellow cake mix
1
pkg.  (3.4 oz.) JELL-O Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding
4
 eggs
1-1/4
cups  water
1/4
cup  oil
2
cups  thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping

Make It

HEAT oven to 350ºF.

CUT pears lengthwise in half; remove cores, then cut pears lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Arrange on bottom of 13x9-inch pan sprayed with cooking spray. Mix sugar and spice; sprinkle over pears. Top with cranberries.

BEAT next 5 ingredients with mixer until blended; pour over ingredients in pan.

BAKE 35 min. or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean and cake begins to pull away from sides of pan. Cool 10 min. Run knife around edges of pan to loosen cake. Place large platter over cake; invert cake onto platter. Gently remove pan. Cool cake slightly. Serve topped with COOL WHIP.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Special Extra
Stir additional 1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice into COOL WHIP before serving over cake.
Note
If you don't have a large platter, invert cake onto baking sheet instead.
Make Ahead
Cake can be made ahead of time. Serve at room temperature. Refrigerate leftovers.
