Pumpkin Pie Bars with Gingerbread Crust

By | September 22, 2013

This time of year you can find all sorts of recipes and desserts with Pumpkin.   I’ve even seen it in dog treats.  I love the idea of combining Pumpkin Pie with gingerbread.  I thought I had tried pumpkin in every way until I tried this.  I could eat Pumpkin Pie in anything.  Every holiday season Dunkin Donuts comes out with Pumpkin Pie coffee, I get pumpkin pie ice cream at Braum’s, then there’s pumpkin pie fudge, brownies, pies, cakes, cookies and on and on and on.  It’s like  your favorite shirt or your favorite pair of shoes, you like the other ones but your favorite just can’t be beat.   That’s how good these pumpkin pie bars are.  You have to try it!   It is truly a treat.  Serve it warm out of the oven topped with cool whip or a scoop of ice cream.
