Reviews for Pumpkin Pie Squares
"Delicious and great for serving a group! I'll definitely make this again."
"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?"
"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."
"This recipe is soooo good, be prepaired with many copies of this recipe, as every one who tries it will want a copy. Thanks for sharing."

"This is delicious. I've made this several times. For company I double the crust Ingredients, and use an 11x15 pan. The filling is plenty for this size pan."
"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!"
"my husband loves this, I do omit the topping an we still love it"
"It is so easy, I cannot make a good pie crust and tried this many years ago, ITS THE BEST, all my friends love it too. So much better than pie."
"I cut the recipe in half, used a smaller pan (7x10) everyone in my bunco group LOVED it!!"
"An additional note--I always use pureed carrots instead of pumpkin."
"I have to admit, I have never made this recipe as written. The recipe I have is 1/2 this filling amount. I have made it many, many times. I don't usually put the topping on but just bake the filling 40 min. and top with whipped cream"
"I've made this several times and it's always a huge hit (almost always...just remember if you are in a hurry, don't forget to add the sugar)"
"I made this for a group of boy scouts and their leaders,about 65 people in all. It was a huge hit! I leave out the ground cloves as we are not crazy about the cloves, but I made enough for 80 people and their was absolutely none left! Will definitely make again! Thanks!!"
"This is the most AWESOME recipe...but warning, it makes a TON!!!! SOOO either send leftovers away...or be prepared to gain weight! :)"
