i make two things immediately when october arrives: these pumpkin squares, and pumpkin chocolate chip muffins. these squares are my hubby's absolute favorite. i don't make them very often during the holiday season, because we will literally eat them (and nothing but) until they're gone.
1 box yellow cake mix, divided
1 stick melted butter
1 large can pumpkin
2 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (i usually add extra)
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2/3 cup milk
a pinch or two of salt
1 cup cake mix
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 stick butter, semi-cool
1 tsp cinnamon
preheat oven to 350 f.
mix ONE cup of cake mix, egg, and butter and press into a 9x13" pan.
mix together filling ingredients and pour into crust.
for topping, cut ingredients together with knives or your fingers and sprinkle over filling.
bake for 45-50 minutes or until topping is crunchy. allow to come to room temperature (or even refrigerate!) before diving in! it doesn't taste nearly as good warm, in my opinion!
