A Piece Of Fall



Today I'm serving up a piece of fall with these delicious Pumpkin Pie Squares. Fall is right around the corner. Actually, the first day of fall is next week. It's my favorite season. I think of the leaves changing, cooler weather, Halloween, Thanksgiving and tasty fall desserts like this one. Although, I would eat this anytime of the year.

Their are actually only a few pumpkin dishes I make and this one went on my list earlier this year. When I was visiting my friend Tammy out in Utah, we had Sunday dinner at her mom and dad's house, which was so good, and her mom made this for dessert. So yum! Basically, it's like a pumpkin pie, but kicked up a notch. It has a crunchy brown sugar, pecan topping and the crust, I love the crust. It's made with oats and brown sugar and it gives this dessert a great flavor. Anyway, I knew I had to have the recipe. Thanks Sis. Hayes for an awesome dish! The whole family loves it!
