Get Pumped Over These Pumpkin Pie Bars!

Fancy Krusteaz pumpkin pie barAs I mentioned in my post on moist and delicious crumb cake, the folks from Krusteaz* recently contacted me and asked if they could send some bake mixes to review. I couldn’t wait to try the pumpkin pie bars after making the Krusteaz crumb cake, which I thought would be a hard act to follow.

All I have to say is if you are a pumpkin lover, you have to make these awesome bars while the mix is on the shelves. As my friend and coworker Elaine put it, “these taste like they came from a bakery, not from a box!” She wanted to know what I added to the mix. Absolutely nothing. I decided to follow the easy directions on the box, and guess what? You really do not need to add a thing to the mix — they are so tasty and have just the right amount of spices. Plus the gingerbread crust is great!
