Just before we left for England in early November, I made thisĀ Pumpkin Pie Dessert Bars for my family. I was planning to post this earlier but because of the family emergency we had, everything, naturally, had to take the backseat. Nonetheless, at the back of my mind, I haven’t forgotten about this truly delightful recipe and made sure to post this at least before Thanksgiving. Besides, who says pumpkin desserts are only for Fall or Thanksgiving? I love pumpkin based desserts so much, I won’t even mind having them during the hottest days of summer – so for me, every season is a good season for Pumpkins!!! Agree? šŸ™‚

I discovered this super-easy and super-yummy dessert – and yes, it’s really super – in the cookbook made by the ladies of our church in Holland, Michigan. I remember reading quite a few delicious sounding recipes for fall there and thought it’s about time I try them out! It’s only been 10 years since I had a copy of that and I have barely scratched the surface when it comes to making the yummy recipes there – although I have tried quite a few which had become a staple in our household. After trying this (I must confess I had a few slices!!!), I have been blaming myself for not making this years ago!! My kids totally loved these pie bars and had a few slices between them, too! Oh, well better late than never.

What I love is the ease of preparation, hardly any, really. It’s similar to a dump cake in a sense. The only major mixing involve is simply combining the pumpkin puree with the pie spice, sugar, milk and eggs. After that, it’s really just spooning everything in the baking dish! I did swirl the topping a little bit to create a lovely texture and to make it look quite pretty as you can see above although pardon the late afternoon photo which, I think, did not do much justice to the pretty cake! Anyway, it’s super easy and even my children can do this on their own. And it’s unbelievably DELISH!!! So, if by chance you want to try a different dessert for Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year, I totally and absolutely recommend this!!!

    Works well with a gluten free cake mix, such as Pamela’s…
