My husband put a request in for pumpkin pie last week..." Pumpkin pie with pecans on it" he said.  I didn't really want to mess with a crust right now so I headed over to the Libby Pumpkin site to see what they had.  I found this pumpkin square recipe, much easier than making pie and just as delicious.  The bottom crust came together very fast ( lucky me) . After patting it into the bottom of a 13x9 inch pan ,I made the pumpkin filling.  Pumpkin pie spice gave it all the warm spice we love in pumpkin , the evaporated milk made the filling creamy and delicious.  Brown sugar and pecans on top , well that's just a bonus, and I was able to meet my husbands request for pecans and pumpkin. Next time I make it ,I'll add a little cinnamon to the topping, I love my cinnamon. The crust has a slight crisp chewy texture, the pumpkin is smooth and spiced while the brown sugar adds a little sweetness on top ,and the pecans give the squares a nice crunch.  Paul loved , I loved it.  This would be an excellent dessert to take to a pot luck or family dinner.  Enjoy!

Just wondering..... I have 6 Wilton mini springform pans, do you think I could adapt this recipe to work in those? Wondering if it would come out of the pans and be firm enough to hold it's shape. Sounds like a really good recipe, thought they would look cute in minature form!

Anonymous it would look cute in miniature form. The crust is flexible its not hard and crumbly so I don't think you'd have a hard time getting them of the bottom plate after they cool. If you want to try it just grease the pans good, but I'm sure you know that already. Let me know how it turns out!
