Graveyard Pumpkin Pie Traybake Bites
For Halloween, we made this traybake pumpkin pie recipe and cut them into squares. The kids created headstones with standard popsicle sticks. Just push into the firm, chilled pumpkin bars and then serve as a graveyard. Get your pumpkin bite before the ghosts get you!
How to Make American Pumpkin Pie (UK Recipe)
Traditionally, Pumpkin Pie is made with a slightly sweetened shortcrust pastry. We find that these bars with the walnuts and cinnamon surrounding the pumpkin custard taste better than traditional pumpkin pie. Plus there is no blind baking, soggy bottoms or shrinkage which are all risks when working with pastry. To make this a more traditional Pumpkin Pie, use a round pie plate and press the crumble in the base and up the sides of the pie plate. Do not reserve any of the crumb mixture for a crumble topping. Bake until the custard is set. Let cool, slice and serve with whip cream.
