Old Fashion Recipes for Pumpkin Pie Squares and Pumpkin Bars

Sometimes we tend to think of pumpkin only in the fall or during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.  But we shouldn’t fall into that trap.  Pumpkin is a healthy food choice and should be enjoyed all year round.  While pumpkin pie is probably our most popular pumpkin desserts, it certainly isn’t the only one.  There are many great pumpkin dessert recipes and following are two good ones.  Pumpkin Pie Squares can actually be used in place of pumpkin pie, especially if you want to change things up a bit.  And pumpkin bars are always a tasty treat.  So get to baking and create a delicious dessert for tonight!
