Pumpkin Pie Squares Recipe

The first time my husband and two daughters tried this dessert, they thought it was delicious. It has all of the spicy pumpkin goodness of the traditional pie without the fuss of a pastry crust. -Denise Goedeken, Platte Center, Nebraska

"if you love pumpkin pie then you'll love this. I made it as written. It makes a lot though so be prepared to serve either to a big crowd or be ready for leftovers, which are always good right?"

"Great recipe. I made this the first time for our church fellowship dinner. It was totally gone by the end of the dinner. I didn't make the topping but served with whipped cream."

"I have been making this for quite some time. I double the crust and bake in 11x15 pan, and bake for about 20 min. I use the filling recipe, and it really fills the pan, but I like a thinner pie square with more crust. I then bake it for 45 min., and don't use the topping. This is really delicious. I also put 1/2 cup of pecans in the crust."

"It is always a toss-up on Thanksgiving to decide whether to make this recipe or regular pumpkin pie....this one usually wins! It is easy to make, tastes great, and feeds a crowd. It could be made without the topping, but that makes it extra yummy so it is definitely worth the extra effort!"
