5.00 avg. rating (91% score) - 2 votes

Pumpkin-Pecan Squares is an easy and delicious recipe for your Thanksgiving, Christmas and/or Easter dinner. A fabulous option instead of the traditional pumpkin pie. It may look difficult but it is very easy and takes only (20) minutes to prepare. It is baked in a 13X9 inch baking pan, if you have a glass baking dish I would recommend using that instead of a metal pan, as the presentation will attract a crowd. Just the right amount of spices bring out the fabulous pumpkin pie flavor and a brown sugar pecan topping. Whipped cream to finish it off. Makes 12 Servings. Pumpkin-Pecan Squares will be loved and asked for often by everyone in your family, friends and guests.pumpkin-pecan-squares
