Dairymom Approved Pumpkin Pie Squares

Happy Fall, Ya'll!

If you love the smell of pumpkin pie  but don't like making pie or just don't have enough hours in your day for pie baking---this is the recipe for you!  As we transition from fall into winter, my thoughts turn to the holiday gatherings with friends and family that always include our favorite foods.

Pumpkin Pie Squares is a favorite of mine that was shared by a nursing friend many years ago. It's a Dairy Farm  Mom Approved recipe that you can find at DairyMakesSense with a lot of other great recipe ideas.
