Notes

Pumpkin puree vs Pumpkin pie filling : Make sure to use pumpkin puree for this recipe and not pumpkin pie filling. The ingredients on the back of the can should only be pumpkin.
Cutting : Use a plastic knife to cut the bars. This will prevent the bars from pulling then you cut them into squares. If you need to use a metal knife, run it under hot water, wipe off any excess water, and then slice. Clean off the knife after each cut and repeat.
Storing : To store these pumpkin bars, place them in an airtight container. They will keep for up to a week when kept out on the counter.
