Pumpkin Pie For An Army!


Do you know how much Pumpkin pie it takes to feed 6 kids and 6-8 adults? I don’t either, but I am thinking at least 6! So I was really happy to discover this recipe called Luann’s Pumpkin Pie Squares!  That taste just like Pumpkin Pie but are in bar form, so you get at least 12 large squares with each recipe rather then the 8 slices you get from a pie! We made them for our church’s Thanksgiving potluck, which we never made it to, so we got to eat them ourselves. :o) Which led me to make the decision to make a couple of these rather then several pies that only make 8 slices. I found this recipe on a fellow bloggers Blog, She Cooks..

Luann’s Pumpkin Pie Squares


  • 1 cup sifted flour
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 15 oz can pumpkin
  • 13.5 oz can evaporated milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 2 tablespoons butter, room temperature

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a mixing bowl, combine flour, oats, 1/2 cup brown sugar, and 1/2 cup butter. Mix until crumbly. Press into an ungreased 13×9-inch baking dish. Bake for 15 minutes.
In a large mixing bowl, combine pumpkin, evaporated milk, eggs, sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves. Blend well. Pour into crust. Bake for 20 minutes.
Combine pecans, 1/2 cup brown sugar and 2 tablespoons butter. Sprinkle over filling. Return to the oven and bake 15-20 more minutes or until set.
Cool in pan on wire rack. Cut into squares. Makes 2 dozen.

I probably won’t be on here much this week.. we have to figure out how to get 6 kids, 2 adults, a big dog, a playpen, and clothing, and most of a Turkey dinner on a three hour trip this week, in a 7 passenger minivan.. LOL.. 

Be Blessed..

  1. Thanks for sharing this recipe! I am not a fan of pie crust and this sounds like the perfect pumpkin pie substitute without skipping the pumpkin pie! Yummy!
