Pumpkin Squares

22 Oct

I have decided to keep riding the pumpkin wave as long as things keep disappearing from my fridge and countertops.

This weekend, I needed to make a dessert for small group and remembered this delish recipe for Pumpkin Squares. I decided to make it one and a half times so I could bring it to work too. It only took about a day for it all to vanish.

A couple people even said that they don’t like pumpkin pie, but really liked these. My guess is that the butter makes it better than pumpkin pie.

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset


1 yellow cake mix

3 eggs

1/2 cup melted butter

1 can (2 cups) pumpkin pie mix

2/3 cup milk

2 tbsp. sugar

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 cup butter


First layer: Combine cake mix (remove 1 cup for the top layer), 1 egg, 1/2 cup melted butter in a medium bowl. Press into the bottom of a greased 9 x 13 pan.

Second layer: Mix together pumpkin pie mix, 2 eggs and 2/3 cup milk. Pour over first layer.

Topping: Mix 1 cup cake mix, 2 tablespoons sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Cut in 1/4 cup butter. Sprinkle crumb topping over 2nd layer. Bake for 45-50 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool, cut into squares, serve with Cool Whip.
