Let's just start by saying that I LOVE baked goods. I love to bake them. I love to eat them. But most of all I love to SHARE them. It makes me so happy to make something that people enjoy and bring smiles to their faces. My husband and boys are chocolate chip cookie fantatics, so I bake those quite often. (Oh, and by the way, I found an even better recipe than that one on the back of the bag folks. You can find it on our Pinterest Board.) But, when I get the opportunity to bake a new recipe, and take it somewhere (so I don't eat all of it), I am very excited!!
A couple of years ago, my son was in 2nd grade and I offered to send in a treat for their Halloween party. I needed something easy and fast since I couldn't bake it until 8pm the night before the party. I scoured to find something and came across a recipe for Pumpkin Pie Squares. You can always count on me to try something new when I shouldn't since just about anything can go wrong, but I did it anyway. It's very similar to the standard pumpkin pie recipe, so what could go wrong, right?!
These squares turned out beautifully and were so delicious - not one came back in the container from school!
Share these Pumpkin Pie Squares this fall with your team; you won't regret it.
