Feature: Pumpkin Pie Bar Cookies: Much Easier Than Pie!

Pumpkin Pie Bar Cookies taste just like pumpkin pie, but are far easier to make and more portable. 

Like pie, the recipe uses pumpkin pie filling, but in place of a fussy pie crust is a simple cake mix base instead.

And like other cake mix cookie recipes, these bars can be mixed together quickly. The cake mix makes putting the bars together easy because the mix saves you steps. 

But the bars are more than a good  substitute for traditional pumpkin pie. They are simply good. All on their own.

Prep time: 15 minutes
Bake time: 45-50 minutes, divided
Makes 35 bars
