Layered Pumpkin Pie Bars Recipe

I love the taste of pumpkin. It isn’t unusual for me to make something pumpkin flavored even when it isn’t fall. While I love pumpkin pie, I really love to see what kind of twist I can put on pumpkin. This recipe was born when I was craving pumpkin but I didn’t want regular pumpkin pie. Taking a few of my favorite recipes, and combining some of the things I loved most from each, these pumpkin bars were born.

How to Store Spice Bars

The pumpkin spice bars will last about 3 to 4 days when stored correctly. Once the bars have cooled, you can keep them in the baking dish or you can move them to an airtight container. If keeping them in the baking dish, it is important to use the lid that comes with the dish or you can wrap it well in plastic.

Can You Freeze These Pumpkin Pie Squares?

If you have read some of my other recipes, you know I am big on freezing foods that we will not finish all of. I also like to keep foods in the freezer so I can take it out whenever I want it without having to worry about the time it takes to make it. If you are worried about some of these pumpkin pie squares spoiling before you can eat them all, storing them in the freezer is a great idea.
I recommend cutting the squares first. Once the pieces are cut, wrap each piece in plastic wrap. I like to put the pieces together in a freezer bag. This gives extra protection against freezer burn and it also keeps the pieces together. This makes it easier to find. Then write what is in the bag and the date. The pumpkin pie squares will stay good in the freezer for up to 6 months.

Can I use fresh pumpkin in these pumpkin bars?

If you like to make your own pumpkin puree, you certainly can.  It is more economical to make your home and you control what type of pumpkin you prefer. While it is more time consuming to make fresh pumpkin puree, you can make a batch and store it in the freezer for desserts like this. If you make your own pumpkin puree you will want to make sure you get the consistency to resemble the canned version.
