Pumpkin Shortbread Dessert
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 65 min. + chilling
I haven't made this yet, tho it looks right up my alley with one exception... why would you use canned pumpkin? Ugh
So much easier than rolling out pie crust! I cut the recipe in half and used a 9x9-inch glass baking pan; it worked out just fine and we saved us from ourselves because it was so good that we would have eaten the entire bigger pan over the course of a couple of days! This is my new go-to Thanksgiving or fall dessert.
Tastes just like a pumpkin pie, but without the mess of rolling out dough!
I had leftover butternut and acorn squashes so I used them instead of pumpkin, no one could tell the difference.
Love this recipe. I was out of cloves, so left out the other two spices and used pumpkin pie spice instead. Was delish and an easy dessert to bring to potlucks etc.
This is excellent! It's really just two pumpkin pies baked in one large pan. If you like pumpkin pie (my favorite!), you will enjoy the convenience of this easy dessert without the hassle of rolling out pie crust. The recipe is easily halved for an 8-inch square pan. Don't halve the amount of cinnamon, though, and the spice amounts will be exactly the same as those for one Libby's 9-inch pumpkin pie.
I'll be making this for the first time for Thanksgiving and was wondering if it can be made ahead of time and frozen. Thanks!!
I’ve made this numerous times and it’s never failed to impress! It IS pumpkin pie...but with a shortbread crust which is Delicious! Highly recommend.
This recipe is great! Easy to make, can be made ahead, and each bite tastes like the center of a pumpkin pie! It also feeds more people than a traditional pumpkin pie, which is nice if you are feeding a crowd. This one will definitely be a repeat in our family!
Family really like this one! I love the simplicity and that this requires no graham cracker crumbs, nor a traditional pie crust. Keeps cost down. Also in the interest of cost, I made this using a recipe to make your own evaporated milk from instant dry powder, BIG mistake, there was a weird off taste- I definitely recommend using the canned evaporated milk.
