Pumpkin Bar

Perfect for the holidays with Christmas coming up, this recipe is not only easy, it is absolutely delicious too. I came across this recipe on TikTok. I had a big can of pumpkin pie mix that definitely needed to be used up. So I used double the pumpkin mix. The result is an even smoother, softer, spongier pie. Of course, the cooking time had to be adjusted from 10 mins to 25 mins.

PREP TIME: 15 mins

COOK TIME: 25 mins
