Are you looking for an easy Thanksgiving dessert? Pumpkin Bars don’t take many ingredients and are easy to prepare. Anytime I’ve served this dish, it’s gotten rave reviews.
Crust: 1 box cake mix, 1/2 cup melted butter, 1 egg
Filling: 16 oz Pumpkin Puree, 5 oz evaporated milk, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 2 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (I mixed my own using cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves)
Topping: 1 cup reserved cake mixture, 2 T granulated sugar, 2 T softened butter, 1 tsp. cinnamon
1. Mix cake mix, 1/2 cup melted butter, and one egg. Reserve 1 cup of mixture. Press the rest in a 10 x 10 baking pan. (A 9 x 13 will work, too.)
2. Mix 16 oz Pumpkin Puree, 5 oz evaporated milk, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup brown sugar, and 2 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie seasoning in a stand mixer. Pour over crust.
3. Mix 1 cup reserved crust mixture, 2 T granulated sugar, 2 T softened butter, and 1 tsp cinnamon. Roll bits of topping in balls and then flatten out and place over filling.
4. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 – 50 minutes.
Serve with ice cream or whipped cream. Doesn’t this look great?
We can devour a pan of this dessert in no time. I promise that you’ll like it!
