Pumpkin Pie Squares

If you follow me on Facebook, than you might have seen the picture that I shared earlier this week of a pumpkin dessert I made.

This is a dessert that I have been thinking about for awhile and I finally had time to give it a try earlier this week. The advantage of being a food blogger is that you get to try things like pumpkin pie squares before Thanksgiving.

It also means that you get to eat pumpkin pie type desserts more than once a year and that is a good thing when you love pumpkin pie.

These pumpkin pie squares are basically my favorite pumpkin pie recipe, baked in a 9×13 pan. I did adjust the amounts some to get it to work in a 9×13 pan, but it is basically the same pie recipe.

One of the things I love about making this pie in 9×13 pan is that it is much easier to make when it comes to the crust, because you just roll it out and press it into a 9×13 pan. No need to worry about pretty edges here and no one sees the imperfections. That is always a good thing.

I also love this because it is an easy dessert to serve a crowd. Tiny pieces of pie look, well tiny, but a dessert served into a 9×13 pan and cut into small squares, does not seem so tiny. At least I don’t think they do.

And of course, my favorite thing about these pumpkin pie squares is the taste. If you love pumpkin these are for you. Rich and creamy and oh so very delicious. Really this is the perfect Thanksgiving Day dessert.

Enjoy!

  1. this makes me want pie right now! yum :)

  2. How awesome to have square pumpkin pie! It looks so neat and pretty. Is it easier to get out of the pan?

    • Thanks. The first piece was not the prettiest :-) but after that they came out fine. I did not have any trouble getting them to come out in the pretty squares. And I like the fact that it is easier to control the size of the pieces and how many it will serve.

  3. How well would this freeze? I love pumpkin pie, but my family doesn’t. So I’d love to freeze individual squares to be able to defrost and eat when I want one. Thanks!

    • I have never frozen pumpkin pie, but I think it would work. You might try halving the recipe and making it in an 8×8 pan to give it a try. I hope you enjoy it!

  4. Can these be frozen?

  5. What could I use to replace the sweetened condensed milk to make it dairy free?

  6. Could I use fresh pumpkin I have from my freezer?

    • I think it should work fine. If it would work in pumpkin pie it should work fine in this. I have not tried it in this exact recipe though.

      • Thank you
        I will try it and let you know it goes. My children love pumpkin pie so I am sure this is going to be a hit!
