These pumpkin squares are sweet and spicy. I was given this recipe by a co-worker over 30 years ago just before I got married, and it's one my husband has always enjoyed. Make sure you use canned pumpkin pie MIX not canned pumpkin.

Tastes like pumpkin pie with a cake like crust. It is yummy. The only problem I had was the dough for the top wasn't really crumbly, but I was able to break it up and drop here and there. Looks great - better than the photo. Thanks for posting!
