Magic Pumpkin Pan Pie

Perhaps the best part of Thanksgiving is the part when the pie is served. Baking the pies, however, can be a whole ‘other ball game. Between prepping the turkey, stirring together the stuffing, and tossing together the sides, who has time to bake a pie? Well sure, we always find a way. But here’s an even easier option: Magic Pumpkin Pan Pie. Called “magic” because it makes its own crust, this recipe is a combination of pumpkin pie and pumpkin streusel bars. An incredibly simple way to enjoy all that pumpkin flavor you love, without all the prep time of a traditional pie. One of our favorite holiday recipes. Especially when you’re called upon to serve a crowd. Makes enough for the whole crew, with a total of 12-16 easy slice servings from every pan.

Fun Flavor Twists

Enjoy this recipe as written below. Or try these easy upgrades:

  • Flavor Swap. Instead of vanilla, try a Spice Cake mix for extra seasonal flavor.
  • Add Booze. Swap half the butter in the recipe for bourbon. So much caramel flavor in that final pie! YUM!
  • Get Saucy. Serve slices of this pie topped with your favorite caramel sauce. Too good for words.
