Quick and Easy Pumpkin Pie Bars

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by SharleneW

I generally bake from scratch, but I ran across this recipe that uses a yellow cake mix that is fabulous. It makes a beautiful three-layer bar that is good either with or without the whipped cream.

To: Sharlene W. My Stars, Girl, this is the most elegant looking and delicious tasting pumpkin recipe I've tried in many a moon! Think I'll forego traditional pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving, and serve this. Thanks so much for posting this outstanding dessert. Laudee C. (Colorado)
