Feeding a crowd is so easy with this Pumpkin Slab Pie. You will find it easy to make and perfect for the upcoming holiday season.
Pumpkin Slab Pie
I have been sharing quite a few desserts these past few weeks that are perfect for serving a crowd over the holiday season. I know we will be serving our Mini Pumpkin Swirl Cheesecakes but I am excited to add this Pumpkin Slab Pie to our holiday dessert list. I think it is a perfect dessert for a pot luck, office party, or home entertaining.
If you plan to serve pumpkin pie, this homemade slab pie will be great. I used a jelly roll pan but you could also use a cookie sheet and scale back your ingredients too. Just be sure your cookie sheet has a high enough lip to accommodate your crust and filling.
I used my super easy 4 Ingredient Homemade Pie Crust and a simple pumpkin pie filling. You could probably use store bought pie crusts but homemade is so inexpensive and easy.
I picked up some cute leaf cutters on clearance at the end of the season last year. I was super anxious to try them. I looked on Amazon and I couldn’t find the exact ones I used but these Leaf Cookie Stampers are almost identical. They really dressed up my Pumpkin Slab Pie but definitely were not necessary.
I had this pie made quite quickly. I love that I can have 30 individual pie bars from the slab. They are like mini individual pie slices. LOVE this!
