These dessert bars are delicious and so easy to make.

Perfect for the fall season and for Thanksgiving (or any other time) for an after dinner dessert, or serve with a light lunch.

Don't even remember where I got the recipe originally. Maybe it was in a cake mix box.

I know and your family will enjoy these. Its a fool proof recipe and you'll look like you've slaved in the kitchen the whole day!

How to Make Delicious Pumpkin Pie Dessert Squares

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease bottom only of 9x13 Pan (Brownie pan works well)
  2. Reserve 1 Cup cake mix for topping. Combine remaining cake mix with butter/margarine and egg. Press into pan.
  3. Combine all filling ingredients and mix until smooth.
    Pour over crust.
  4. Combine topping ingredients and sprinkle over filling.
  5. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes until a knife inserted in center comes out clean. (you can also test making sure it's not wiggly anymore.
  6. Let cool and refrigerate. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream or whipped topping, or just by itself.
  7. NOTE FOR LACTOSE INTOLERANT PEOPLE: If made with margarine, almond/rice soy milk it's a great lactose free dessert, for those lactose intolerant people like me. :-) ---Even though no lactose in butter, one of the healthy margarine works great.
