Pumpkin Butter Bars

Tis the season for all things PUMPKIN! I absolutely love all the sweet and savory pumpkin inspired baked goodies that begin popping up this time of year. The only problem is I’m not much for baking. I lack the patience and scientific precision it takes to pull off the perfect cakes, pies, or pastries. I’m definitely no Bakerella– I’m a Hot Potato–  So when I stumbled upon this recipe that called for box cake mix and my favorite addition of the season- pumpkin butter– I was intrigued.

Inspired from a Williams-Sonoma recipe I played with a few years ago, these delicious pumpkin bars are now a staple on our Thanksgiving table.
