Gooey Pumpkin Bars

I used to not be a fan of pumpkin. Not savory or sweet pumpkin recipes. But, as predicted, my tastes changed and I like pumpkin desserts now. I can still say I’m not a huge fan of savory pumpkin dishes.

Pumpkin is very similar in taste to sweet potatoes. And, I grew up eating and loving sweet potatoes. After all, I live the Sweet Potato Capital of the world!!

Gooey Pumpkin Bars with Praline Topping Tips

Let this cool before slicing. It really needs to set or this dessert will crumble.

I like to take bars instead of pie to potlucks because they go further.

Plus, I like the filling to crust ratio for these bars. It has a less filling and more crust ratio.

Finally, the praline topping is everything! So good!
