Maple-Pumpkin Pie Bars | Life, Love, and Good Food

After rave reviews and a quick disappearing act at our family Thanksgiving dinner, these Maple-Pumpkin Pie Bars (recipe clipped from a Jello ad in Southern Living) have landed a spot on my “repeat recipe” list.  The chewy crust, creamy pumpkin center, and layer of whipped cream make for a pretty and yummy dessert, plus it’s easy to make. That’s a win-win for me!

Tips: I didn’t find Pumpkin Spice flavor instant pudding at our grocery, so instead I used Cheesecake flavor pudding and added a teaspoon of pumpkin spice. It was still delicious! I think you could also substitute Cool Whip in place of the Dream Whip and milk; just add in maple syrup before topping the dessert.
