Pumpkin Pecan Pie Squares
Pumpkin Pecan Pie Squares – sweet, nutty, crumbly pumpkin dessert topped with toasted pecans, so good, addictive you won’t stop eating!
I can’t believe that it’s almost mid October. Everywhere I turn to, I see different shapes of orange pumpkins: big, small or tiny. Everywhere I turn to reminds me that this is the last quarter of the year 2015, and soon the holiday madness will begin. Do you ever wonder where does time go?
Anyway, this is the season for pumpkin, especially pumpkin desserts. Recently, I have shared pumpkin bread pudding, pumpkin doughnut muffins, and pumpkin roll recipes. In this post, I wanted to share another amazing Fall dessert: pumpkin pecan pie squares.
I find that many pumpkin desserts come with a walnut topping or chopped walnuts within. But let’s not forget pecans go really well with pumpkin pie spices too. To prove my point, I found this recipe to share.
this Pumpkin Pecan Pie Squares taste just like traditional pumpkin pie to me. But this version has toasted pecans on top for a super nutty finish. As for the base, it’s almost like an oatmeal cookie. Filled with dark brown sugar for a richer dessert, it’s a tad crumbly, just the way I like it. The old-fashioned oats also create flakiness that reminds me of pie crust.
