I am obsessed with pumpkin, and all the members of the winter squash family for that matter. As soon as I wake up to a chill in the air, a few rainy days, and the first appearance of a yellow leaf in the yard, I pull out the pumpkin. I like to puree my own pumpkin from the garden or farmer’s market, but I also stockpile the canned stuff because you can’t be too prepared when it comes to pumpkin.
This week we are replacing our salt water sandals with moccasins, mixing in tights and sweaters with all of our outfits, and adding lot’s of pumpkin to my menu plans for the next few months. I’ve already made a big dent in my canned pumpkin stash since the weather turned, so I think I better plan on making some pumpkin puree real soon too.
These Pumpkin Pie Bars have been dessert more than once in the past week. They are simple yet delicious. These bars taste like a pumpkin pie and are pretty, not unlike a pie, but they are a fraction of the work. They satisfied my seasonal pumpkin cravings and sweet tooth demands in no time at all.
