How to Make Pumpkin Chess Squares

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix first 3 ingredients for crust in a medium bowl. Batter will be thick. Lightly spray 9x13" pan with cooking spray. Press crust into pan until somewhat even.
  2. Mix remaining ingredients for filling in a large bowl and pour over crust.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for approx. 40-45 mins. Dessert will begin to crack and brown. It still may appear jiggly, but will set more as it cools.
  4. Let cool. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and cut into squares.
