A delicious pie crust, a layer of creamy pumpkin pie filling, and a topping of pie mix make these bars the ultimate pumpkin dessert. This simple recipe will become your new favorite autumn dessert. Don’t forget to top with whipped cream and sprinkle with cinnamon.
I have my traditional pumpkin bars with frosting, which are perfect for hosting a large crowd, a potluck, and more, but these pumpkin dessert bars are a different twist.
They start with a base of baking mix, have a creamy pumpkin center, and are topped with sprinkles of baking mix.
If you’re looking for an easy Thanksgiving treat, you should make these. So, if you’re tired of plain old pumpkin pie, these are the pies for you. Plus, the ingredients are pretty standard and I imagine you have most, if not all, of them in your pantry.
WHY THIS RECIPE WORKS:
The base crust is made with a cake mix, which makes it easy to make.
In the middle is a creamy, delicious pumpkin filling.
On top are another baking mix, butter, and sugar.
These are easy to make in advance and perfect for guests.
