Pumpkin Pie for a Crowd

It’s pumpkin pie for a crowd. These creamy pumpkin pie bars are perfect for a large pumpkin pie loving thanksgiving crowd.

Why make two or three normal pies when you can make one large slab pie? Another great thing about this pie is that there is no “end crust.” If you’re a crust lover I guess that would be the only down side of this recipe. I brought in the big guys to test taste this recipe. Someone who is a true pumpkin pie lover, my boyfriend. I’m sure he’s had more than enough pumpkin pie in his day to judge this one.

This pumpkin pie for a crowd happened to be the best pumpkin he’s ever had. Of course I never believe him because I feel like he’s just trying to be nice BUT I asked him over and over again and he promised.

Are you a chilled pumpkin pie eater or a room temperature pumpkin pie eater? I think chilled makes the dessert somehow feel over all “lighter.”  We can pretend right? Tis’ the season to indulge. Speaking of indulging, what’s your favorite foods to indulge on? I like mashed potatoes and gravy, ooey gooey cinnamon rolls topped with loads and loads of frosting, pasta bakes, and brownies. 

Now I’m making myself hungry.

I have been working on some super amazing recipes for this holiday season and I cannot wait to share them with all of you. I decided to put a spin on the traditional cinnamon rolls and I think you’re all really going to love it. 

This weekend my dads coming to visit so I’ll have an extra taste tester for some of the recipes I have been working on. I really like when people come to visit. More sweets for them and less for me 🙂

    I like my pumpkin pie cold or at room temp – either way! This is a fabulous idea. We always have to make at least 2 of each kind of pie, so I’m loving this solution.

    I would much rather make a bunch of pumpkin pie bars than multiple pies. This is brilliant!

    Great idea to make it into a slab “pie” rather than make several regular pies. This is great for a large group.

    I only added a cup of sugar and these were a little too sweet for my taste! Next time I won’t add any sugar. Otherwise, they are perfect and delicious!
